  • Bachelor’s Degree in Physics, Università degli studi di Torino, (2011-2014).
  • Master's Degree in Physics of complex systems, Università degli studi di Torino, (2014-2017).
  • Junior researcher, Lagrange grant, Institute for Scientific Interchange, Data Science LAB, (2017-2018).
    Project involving the analysis of the socio-economic factors that drive Bitcoin adoption and, the assessing the impact of Zika alert on human mobility, through digital traces in Miami
  • Junior researcher, Institute for Scientific Interchange, Financial AI Lab, (2018-2019).
    Data science and machine learning applied to financial data. In collaboration with Intesa SanPaolo and Banca IMI.
  • Currently, my PhD is focusing on dynamical processes on complex networked systems.
    A part of the work is devoted to the identification of coexisting dynamical processes that simultaneously govern the evolution of networks.
    A second research topic is instead focusing on epidemics spreading, both from a modeling and simulation point of view.
