Expertise

My background is in theoretical nuclear physics and during the past few years I have worked on several different topics such as elastic and quasi-elastic electron-nucleus scatering, ab initio calculations of nuclear reactions, and a microscopic approach for the calculations of a nucleon-nucleus optical potential to be employed to describe elastic scattering processes.

Research Activities

My main research activity and the NNDC is focused on the evaluation of nuclear reaction data that are then made available to the entire data community and are meant to be used in many different applications. My secondary research activity is focused on the improvement of the cross section probability tables and is relevant for the nuclear scriticality safety program. I am also interested in machine learning and I am currently exploring how it can be applied to my research activities.

Education

I received my Ph.D. at Pavia University (Italy) in 2016 with a thesis in theoretical nuclear physics. The research project was focused on the investigation of the nuclear properties of exotic nuclei using electrons and protons as probes.
