Research activities

My research activity is focused on the multi-messenger study of coalescing binary systems of compact objects, which are among the most extreme phenomena in the universe. Part of my work is focused on simulations of electromagnetic signals (X-rays and gamma rays) and gravitational wave  signals expected from these systems, which are used for example to put constraints on the theoretical models describing the formation and evolution of these sources and to study the capability of current and next generation instruments to detect multi-messenger signals. I also work on the joint analysis of electromagnetic and gravitational data.
I am a member of the following scientific collaborations: Virgo, Einstein Telescope (ET), Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA), electromagnetic counterparts of gravitational wave sources at the Very Large Telescope (Engrave) and GRAvitational Wave Inaf TeAm (GRAWITA).
