I'm a Ph.D. student in Civil and Environmental Engineering (DIATI). I'm working at the Department of Environment, Land and Infrastructure Engineering (DIATI) of Politecnico di Torino. I graduated in Civil Engineering at Politecnico di Torino in 2022 with a thesis entitled "Low temperatures characterization of bituminous binders by means of the MTL (Monotonic Torsional Loading) test" focused on a novel methodology, developed by a research group of Politecnico di Torino itself, for the evaluation of asphalt binders’ low-temperature characteristics using DSR. In November 2022, I started my Ph.D. path focused on the experimental investigation of innovative products and sustainable technological solutions in asphalt mixtures in a circular economy key.
