My research activity is focused on the multimessenger investigation of the most extreme phenomena in the Universe. This approach has opened a new window on the cosmos and allows to explore the laws of Nature in a totally new perspective. In particular, the discovery of the GW170817 event by LIGO and Virgo opened a new era of multimessenger studies based on gravitational waves and photons. The cosmic messengers I am mainly interested in, are high-energy photons (X and gamma rays) and gravitational waves. In my research I focus on the most extreme cosmic sources, including neutron stars and pulsars. I am also interested in advanced data analysis techniques, in particular machine learning and neural networks, and how to use them to tackle very complex problems in modern Physics, also involving citizen science. I am member of the Fermi Large Area Telescope Collaboration, of the Virgo Collaboration, and of the Einstein Telescope Collaboration.
