I was born in Pescia (Tuscany) in 1993 and I currently live in Larciano (Tuscany), a small town near Vinci, the hometown of Leonardo.
I attended the scientific college “Amedeo di Savoia Duca d’Aosta” in Pistoia (Tuscany) and graduated in 2012 with final mark 100/100. Then, I took both my Bachelor’s Degree (2015) and my Master’s Degree (2017) in Physics at the University of Pisa, both with 110/110 cum laude.
During my Master’s Degree I focused my studies on Theoretical Physics, in particular Quantum Field Theories and their lattice formulation, and I developed a strong interest in Quantum Chromodynamics.
In my Master’s Thesis work, supervised by prof. Massimo D’Elia, I studied the topological properties of the CP^(N-1) model using lattice Monte Carlo simulations. This theory is an interesting toy model to study non-perturbative QCD and its lattice formulation constitues an ideal test-bed to try new algorithms and new ideas to be used in LQCD. My plan is to continue the study of LQCD and of non-perturbative QCD during the PhD.
My other interests besides physics are music (I play the electric guitar) and Japan, in particular japanese culture (both popular and traditional).
