My research activity takes place in the field of theoretical nuclear physics.
In particular, I am mainly focused
1) on the study of the nuclear interaction, using effective field theories which allow to connect the physics of nuclei with the underlying fundamental theory of QCD;
2) on the development of accurate ab-initio methods for the study of various nuclear observables;
3) on the predictions of cross sections for nuclear reactions of astrophysical interest. These theoretical predictions are essential for the theory of Big Bang Nucleosynthesis, and for stellar evolution.
Recently, the ab-initio methods developed by my research group have been applied to study nuclear reactions involved in fusion nuclear reactors. This research activity had allowed me to build a fruitful collaboration with local companies.
