I am a phd candidate of Politecnico di Torino in Electrical, Electronics and Communications Engineering.
I got my bachelor and master degree from Università di Torino in physics in 2018 and 2020 respectively.
My first experience in the world of research started during my bachelor thesis, at Astronomical observatory INAF of Pino Torinese (TO). Here I adapted an old simulator to the purpose of detecting strange quark matter (nuclearites) from the Russian detector TUS.
During the master degree in theoretical physics, I worked for master thesis in machine learning for space images processing. During this period I have collaborated with Riken, an international research center in Japan where I have been for two months. A lot of work was done trying to apply recent neural networks models to data of Mini-EUSO, a detector mounting on ISS able to detect cosmic rays, space debris, transient luminous events and other events.
The exciting and promising results led me to decide this research area as my future research. Then I chose Politecnico di Torino for proceeding my career and do my best within the research group of prof. E.Magli for remote sensing image processing developing advanced and sophisticated deep learning techniques.
