    CV

    Nationality:  Italy

    Country of Birth:  Italy

    Date of Birth: 30/01/1984

    City of Birth: Cento (Ferrara), Italy

     

    Current Professional Situation: 

    Studentship at the  University of Cambridge

     

    Institution: Cambridge University (Cambridge, UK)

    Modality of the contract: Temporary 

    Dates: 1 year (January 2014 - January 2015)

    Professional Activity:

    I am carrying out a research project on the study of  the 2D kinematic properties of the neutral gas (NaD 5890,5896 A) in a sample of 38 local Luminous and Ultra-Luminous Infrared Galaxies ([U]LIRGs, 31 LIRGs and 7 ULIRGs, 51 individual galaxies) observed with VIMOS/VLT. This sample covers well the less studied LIRG luminosity range, and it includes the morphological types corresponding to the different phases along the merging process (i.e., isolated disks, interacting systems, and mergers). This work differs from other  recent studies of galactic winds (e.g., Westmoquette et al. (2012)) by the comparison of the kinematics of the neutral gas and that of the ionized gas on spaxel-by-spaxel basis (0.6’’ spatial sampling) and by the ability to probe simultaneously multiple gas phases (neutral and ionized).

    Later, I will extend this study to other kind of feedback mechanisms (e.g., SF occurring in outflows) in a small sample of three galaxies (hosting an AGN) by using near-IR spectroscopy data taken with Near Infrared Camera Spectrometer (NICS) mounted on the Telescopio Nazionale Galileo (La Palma, Islas Canarias/España).

     

    Context:

    It is crucial to understand the forces central to galaxy evolution, including physical feedback processes during the lifetime of a galaxy, such as winds. Multiphase galactic winds are ever present in starburst galaxies, and their main properties can directly be probed by the NaD lines produced by the neutral phase of the outflowing gas. The results for local wind could be used for a direct comparison other feedback mechanisms.

    CSIC-Contract

    Institution: CSIC-CAB (Torrejon de Ardoz, Madrid)

    Modality of the contract: Temporary 

    Dates: 1 year (January 2013 - December 2013)

    Professional Activity:

    I have carried out a research training project on the study of the neutral gas kinematics of [U]LIRGs using VIMOS/VLT Integral Field Spectroscopy (IFS) data. I have investigated the presence of outflows in these galaxies using the Sodium absorption line feature (NaD 5890,5896 A). I have studied the kinematics of the neutral gas using 2-D (spatially resolved) IFS data.

    Institution: CSIC-CAB (Torrejon de Ardoz, Madrid)

    Modality of the contract: Temporary 

    Dates: 2 years (September 2010 - September 2012)

    Professional Activity:

    I have carried out a research training project on the study of the neutral gas kinematics of [U]LIRGs using VIMOS/VLT Integral Field Spectroscopy (IFS) data. I have investigated the presence of outflows in these galaxies using the Sodium absorption line feature (NaD 5890,5896 A). I have studied the kinematics of the neutral gas using 1-D (spatially integrated spectra).

     

    Keywords. galaxies: starburst — ISM: jets and outflows — ISM: kinematics and dynamics

    Stage at  Alma Mater Studiorum Bologna

    Institution: University,  Alma Mater Studiorum Bologna 

    Modality of the contract: Temporary 

    Dates: 8 months (starting: 01/2010)

    Professional Activity:

    After my graduation, I was in Bologna to extend my project characterizing with multi wavelength data the X-Ray Sources around the galaxy cluster Abells1995 (e.g. looking for the optical counterparts of these sources). I studied the source-counts in the very deep and wide surveys that have been recently  performed with XMM-Newton and Chandra Observatory (e.g. C-COSMOS and XMM-COSMOS) to reveal AGN overdensities and to study the phenomenology and evolution of the galaxy/AGN population as a function of the environment. I showed my results during seminars and conferences.
