I was born in Rome in 1993, where I obtained scientific high school diploma (P.N.I. curriculum) at â€œLiceo Scientifico Evangelista Torricelliâ€ with a mark of 100/100. I studied at the University of Rome â€œLa Sapienzaâ€ for Bachelorâ€™s degree in Physics and Masterâ€™s degree in Theoretical Physics, both with a final mark of 110/110. My bachelor's thesis concerned Plasma Physics, in particular the Magnetohydrodynamics as fluid description of a plasma. Besides, I attended two Plasma Physics summer schools, one at Culham Centre for Fusion Energy and another one in Lisbon. I moved my research interest to Gravitation and Cosmology during master's course. I studied f(R) modified theories of gravity and inhomogeneous models of Universe for my masterâ€™s thesis. The principal aim was to determine the evolution of inhomogeneous perturbations in the late Universe, in order to highlight differences between the standard cosmological model, LCDM, and alternative models based on modified gravity. My current research interests concern Theoretical Cosmology, in particular modified gravity, the dark energy problem, the large-scale structure of the Universe and the effects of spatial inhomogeneities as well.
