About

I received my PhD in Physics (2017) from the University of Strathclyde (Glasgow, Scotland) following my research on advanced technologies for spatio-temporal control of neural circuits in the mammalian retina using optogenetics. At Strathclyde, I worked with the Neurophotonics group at the Institute of Photonics (IoP), Dept. of Physics. In spring 2015, I have been a visiting researcher at the Santa Cruz Institute for Particle Physics, University of California Santa Cruz (UCSC), Santa Cruz, US.

I hold a M.Sc. in Nuclear and Subnuclear Physics (2012) and a B.Sc. in Physics (2010) from the University of Torino, where I helped developing optical methods for the functionalisation of artificial diamond for photonic applications and I collaborated in the investigation of calibration effects in the reconstruction of muon trajectories generated from proton-proton collisions at the CMS experiment-CERN.
