    Research Experience

    01/2010 – 03/2013 Ph.D. Student at the Università degli Studi di Catania

    The main duty was the synthesis of the flux variation produced by stellar magnetic activity in specified wavebands. The analysis was published. In this context I had to

    • Create an automatic IDL procedure which produced the results giving input parameter of interest.

    • Collaborate with the Astronomical Observatory of Palermo to learn their technique and use their computer resources.

    • Investigate how the presence of starspots may influence the stellar spectroscopy.


     

    05/2007 – 12/2008 Undergraduate Student at the Università degli Studi di Palermo

    The main duty was to use the data of a Chandra observation of a star forming region, Trumpler 16. In this context I had to

    • Characterize morphologically the X-ray diffuse emission around two massive stars within the region: ηCarinae and WR 25 (about 100 and 20 Msun, respectively) observed with the Chandra Satellite.

    • Characterize spectroscopically the X-ray diffuse emission around these two massive stars in order to understand the primary processes producing this emission.

    • Analyse XMM observations of the source WR 25 to compare our results to those obtained with that facility.

     

    Other research experience

    • Tutoring - Support to students for the use of specified softwares for the reduction and analysis of X-ray data during the school exercises.

    • Scientific Guide – Accompanying students to the halls of the demonstration.

    • Private tuition.

    • Co-Investigator of the LBT Proposal “LBC view of the atmosphere of the transiting Super-Earth GJ 1214b”.
