    Social skills and competences
    I gained considerable ability in building up and maintaining working relations with scientists and researchers of different countries;  I learned how to work in team and co-operate for reaching an aim during my PhD research program;  I earned considerable leadership and team building skills during the postdoctoral period, as mentor of several PhD students;  I gained autonomy in research decisions during the postdoc, as principal investigator of my research project "MEGaN";
     I acquired communication skills thanks to the large numbers of invited seminars and contributed talks given at international conferences and universities;  I learned how to disseminate the results of my research work to a large audience, authoring and co-authoring several articles on scientific topics, related to my researches. Organisational skills and competences  I gained considerable skills in problem solving;  I earned skills in organising and solving large amount of tasks as principal investigator of the "MEGaN" project;  I acquired experience in coordinating and organising scientific event as member of the local organizing committee of two international conferences;  I devoted part of my working experience to develop a fruitful collaboration with experienced and senior researchers in several european universities and research facilities.


    Technical skills and competences
    High level experience in the management of the main computer components. I contributed in the assembly process and basic installation of the 5 HPC workstations hosted at the Department of Physics (University of Rome "Sapienza") since 2010 up to the present days. In the time period 2010-2017 I have been the main administrator of 6 HPC workstations: ASTROC16a and ASTROC16b, each one comprised of 4 Nvidia Titan X GPUs and 2 Intel Xeon processors; ASTROC9, comprised of 4 Radeon HD7970 GPUs and 2 Intel Xeon processors; and ASTROC15, comprised of 1 Radeon HD7990 and 1 Radeon HD7970 GPUs, and an I7 Intel processor.


    Computer skills and competences
    High level experience in sequential programming (C, Fortran), object-oriented programming (C++); experience in parallel programming (OpenMP), basic knowledge of GPU Programming (CUDA and OpenCL), multi-processor parallel programming (MPI). 
    Deep knowledge of HiGPUs (suited for galaxies and star clusters evolution), Nbody6 code(star cluster and stellar evolution), BSE package (stellar evolution), NEMO (tool for sampling stellar systems), Mercury (Planetary dynamics), AR (algorithmic regularization implementation). In several cases, I modified some of the codes cited above according to our needing. I also developed several, not public, tools for N-body data analysis and diagnostic and several codes for semi-analytical integration of velocity dependent differential equations and for modelling star clusters and galactic nuclei evolution. I have a deep knowledge of the GNUPLOT environment, devoted to the exploiting of plots and statistical analysis of mathematical trends. Moreover, I accumulated a highlevel knowledge of the qtiplot and origin software, widely used for performing statistics
    on large sample of data as well as for plotting purposes. Deep knowledge of the LaTex environment, which I used to develop all my scientific publications and report.
    High level experience in Linux O.S. usage, high level experience in Microsoft O.S., Microsoft applications and the Office package, graduate with ECDL (European Computer Driving License).

    Analysis skills and competences
    During my work as astrophysicist, I gained experience in interpreting the evolution of physical processes, and I learned how to model them. This allowed me to earn an invaluable capacity of forecasting the evolution of astrophysical processes, in first place. On the other hand, the forecasting strategies developed during my research period can be applied to other aspects of human life: from climate changing to financial trading.
