Degree: Pisa (2017)
Research: Progetti REPORT e RUMBLE del programma INTERREG tra Francia e Italia sul rumore dei porti.
Supervisor: Gaetano Licitra - Francesco Fidecaro
Thesis: Analysis of Tyre Rolling Noise on Low Noise Pavements


I come from Maiori, a small town on the Amalfi Coast, near Salerno. I attended the Science High School, Liceo Scientifico in Italian, in Amalfi. I moved in Pisa in 2007, in order to study Physics at the local university. In 2011, I obtained my bachelor degree, with the thesis Propagazione delle vibrazioni meccaniche nella pavimentazione stradale, while in 2017 I earned a master's degree in Physics, with the thesis Implementation of a laser profilometer for road texture measurements and its correlation with rolling noise.
My current research is based on the further perfectioning of the profilometer and the development of a new model that relates texture levels and noise emission. I am also studying the possibility to develop railway pads made of rubber crumb from end-of-life tyres.
My main interests lie in experimental physics, especially acoustics and optics; I am fond of any kind of data analysis, electronics and technology. I hope to learn more and more about these topics during my PhD studies.
I love studying languages and cultures: I currently take Chinese classes at the Confucius Institute in Pisa, and have an HSK 3 certification – B1 Chinese level; however, I am planning to extend my knowledge to other languages in the future.
I am also a teaching assistant for the course of Acoustics at the Physics Department, University of Pisa.
During my spare time I practice Muay Thai and boxing. After a hard day's work, a nice video gaming session is more than welcome.
My webpage is always up to date, and provides information about my latest researches.
