Welcome to my homepage!

I'm an astrophysicist working atINAF-IASF Milano. My research focuses on X-ray and Gamma-ray emission from accreting compact objects, mainly X-ray binaries.

Basically, what I do is peer into this:


The X-ray sky

Complementary to pure research, I (have) invest(ed) part of my time in ground segment and/or operational activities for high energy missions such as INTEGRAL, and the less fortunate Simbol-X.

Last but not least come the efforts to "diffuse knowledge", be it with students (thesis advisor, Olimpiads of Astronomy committee member) or colleagues (organizer of scientific seminars, known asAstro-Siesta).

SeeHERE for more on my CV and Research Activity.


... because in the end, it all boils down to:
