I work as postdoc, at Yale University, USA, and NORDITA, Sweden.
I was born in Campobasso, southern Italy, did my master at Pisa University and my PhD at NORDITA, with a thesis on turbulent dynamos.
After a postdoc at CEA-Saclay (Paris), working on the role of magnetic helicity in star forming galaxies, I joined the groups of John Wettlaufer and Debra Fischer at Yale to work on star-planet interaction as well as the role of stellar noise in the detection of exoplanets. My main interests are exoplanetary studies, aurora emission, astrophysical dynamos and magnetic fields.
I am member and founder of the international outreach program, GalileoMobile, which is active since 2008 to share astronomy among underprivileged communities in SouthAmerica, as well as Africa and India. With GalileoMobile, I have co-produced two documentaries: “Under the same sky” (2011) and “In the Land of Beauty” (2014).
