Stanza: 69, Ed. C

I was born in Caserta in 1996, but moved in La Spezia shortly after. I obtained my high-school diploma at the Liceo Scientifico Pacinotti institute, in La Spezia. I obtained my Bachelor's degree in March 2019 at the University of Pisa. I then carried on my studies in the same University, focusing on Gravitational Waves and Machine Learning. I obtained my Master's degree in February 2023, the topic of my thesis being machine learning applied to the systematic study of transient noise in Advanced Virgo. My Ph.D. project will focus on studying and optimizing the seismic attenuation system of the third-generation gravitational wave detector Einstein Telescope, in order to improve the low-frequency response of the experiment.
