In the first act of lunar exploration, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin were major characters. In setting its sights on the Moon, ESA hopes to bring many more actors to this off-world stage. By testing the market for transport services to the Moon, ESA aims to push the limits of technology and create new models of space business. Touching down on the Moon was a monumental moment in human history. Eight short years and enormous resources took humankind to the lunar surface, initially for le...

Astronomers have used ALMA to capture a strikingly beautiful view of a delicate bubble of expelled material around the exotic red star U Antliae. These observations will help astronomers to better understand how stars evolve during the later stages of their life-cycles. In the faint southern constellation of Antlia (The Air Pump) the careful observer with binoculars will spot a very red star, which varies slightly in brightness from week to week. This very unusual star is called U Antliae and...

The Sun's recent activity has caught the interest of scientists and space weather forecasters worldwide, highlighting the need to keep a watchful eye on our star and its awesome power. On 6 and 10 September, our Sun produced a pair of solar flares, the strongest observed in over 10 years. They were accompanied by huge eruptions of billions of tonnes of matter into space. While many such eruptions fall back onto the hot surface, these two did not and became 'coronal mass ejections' (CMEs) -...

NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has observed a planet outside our solar system that looks as black as fresh asphalt because it eats light rather than reflecting it back into space. This light-eating prowess is due to the planet's unique capability to trap at least 94 percent of the visible starlight falling into its atmosphere. The oddball exoplanet, called WASP-12b, is one of a class of so-called "hot Jupiters," gigantic, gaseous planets that orbit very close to their host ...

Launch is the most strenuous part of a satellite's life. To survive the extreme sound wave pressure and pounding vibrations generated by more than 700,000 lbs. of thundering rocket thrust, spacecraft need a solid, reliable design if they hope to arrive operational on orbit. On July 13, Lockheed Martin (LMT)'s second, fully-assembled GPS III space vehicle (SV) completed a realistic simulation of its future launch experience and passed this critical acoustic environmental test with flying color...

    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).



    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.

    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: 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.
