Since March 2017 I am an Assistant Professor at the Department of Physics and Astronomy of University of La Serena, Chile.
Before, I was Gemini Science Fellow at the GEMINI South telescope, where I have arrived in September 2014 after an experience both as a Support Astronomer at the MPG 2.2m telescope (ESO La Silla Observatory) and as a FONDECYT Postdoctoral Fellow at the Instituto de Astrofísica of Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile (PUC) in Santiago.
I obtained my PhD degree from the Department of Physics & Astronomy of the University of Padova (Italy) in April 2009, discussing a thesis entitled "Gas and Dust Spectral Analysis of Galactic and Extra-galactic Symbiotic Stars" under the supervision of Prof. P. Rafanelli and Dr. M.Contini, of Tel Aviv University, Israel. I spent in fact an important fraction of my PhD years as a visiting student at the Sackler Institute of Astronomy of the Tel Aviv University.
I obtained my MS at the Department of Astronomy of the University of Padova in July 2005, discussing a thesis about the infrared properties of dusty (D-type) symbiotic stars, under the supervision of Prof. P. Rafanelli.
From 1992 to 1997 I studied humanities at the "Liceo Classico Tacito" in Terni (Italy), where I received - among others - a classical training in Philosophy, Latin and Ancient Greek.
