Since 2014 I work at the Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics (IPP) in Garching, near Munich. My current research focuses on two main topics:

My day-to-day work spans over algorithm development, software design, and computer programming in Python, C/C++ and Fortran. More often than not, I write MPI-parallel code for distributed-memory architectures.


My education background is quite unconventional: I studied Aerospace Engineering (bachelor's and master's degrees) at the University of Padua in Italy, and I was awarded a PhD degree in Science, Technology and Measurements for Space at CISAS in 2011.

My PhD thesis is publicly available online.

Past research

In my previous experience at University of Wisconsin and Michigan State University, I had the pleasure to work with professors Nick Hitchon, Andrew Christlieb and John Verboncoeur, as well as fellow post-docs David Seal and Matt Causley, and talented PhD students (Guy Parsey, Qi Tang and Eric Wolf). With them I developed various numerical tools for computational plasma physics:
