    CV

    Born in Roma, Italy on 28th October 1984

    Nationality: Italian

     

    Current occupation

    PhD position at the Institute of Geography, University of Bern, Switzerland in the field of Remote Sensing and Air Quality. Starting date: December 2008. PhD project: the project is mainly focused on the investigation of the potential of Earth Observation satellites data for ground Particulate Matter spatial assessment. This is a joint project between Bern University and the Institute of Applied Remote Sensing, European Academy (EURAC), Bolzano, Italy.

    Supervisors: Dr. Stefan Wunderle (University of Bern), Dr. Marcello Petitta (EURAC)

     

    Graduate Education

    24th October 2008 Master’s Degree (’Laurea Specialistica’) in Physics, Universit`a La Sapienza, Roma. As- signed mark 110/110 cum laude. Thesis Project: Study on the formation of jets in planetary atmospheres and in laboratory. Brief Description of the Thesis Project: The evidence of presence of a jet like circulation in many solar system planets and Earth’s oceans is analyzed and the explanation based on quasi-geostrophic turbulence reviewed. Some numerical simulations of decaying turbulence on a rotating sphere are per- formed to investigate the difference between a shallow water model and a bidimensional fluid. Finally, a real small rotating tank experiment is carried out and the results are discussed.

    Supervisor: Prof. Alfonso Sutera

     

    Undergraduate Education

    24th November 2006 Bachelor’s Degree (‘Laurea triennale’) in Physics, Universit`a La Sapienza, Roma. As- signed mark 110/110 cum laude. Undergraduate Thesis Project: Analysis of the potential of a measure of the ratio of the CKM matrix elements Vtd/Vts by the Bs meson rare decayments. Brief Description of the Thesis Project: The CKM matrix elements give important informations about the matter-antimatter asymmetry in the universe. The thesis work, conducted on Monte-Carlo simu- lations, wants to calculate the statistical signifiance of some CKM matrix parameters measure in a new hypotetical high energy particles physics experiment. The physical implication are then discussed. Supervisors: Prof. Riccardo Faccini and Dr. Maurizio Pierini
