About me

I graduated in Lecce, Italy, at University of Salento in 2011, under the supervision of Piergiulio Tempesta e Rosario Antonio Leo, and I later obtained my PhD at the University of Pisa in 2015, under the supervision of Sergio Caracciolo. After a two-year postdoc in the Centro Brasileiro de Pesquisas Físicas in Rio de Janeiro, I am now a post-doctoral researcher in Statistical Physics at Sapienza Università di Roma, in the group of Giorgio Parisi.

You can find the manuscript of my PhD thesis here.

Research interests

During my PhD I started, under the supervision of Sergio Caracciolo and in collaboration with Carlo Lucibello and Giorgio Parisi, an investigation of random matching problems. We obtained interesting results on many properties of optimal matchings (average optimal cost, correlation functions, finite-size corrections). This line of research is still going on with many other people.


Recently I also worked with Fernanda Benetti, Giorgio Parisi and Francesca Pietracaprina on simple models for the density of states of amorphous solids. Our results were based on random-spring models defined on random graphs, solved by means of exact diagonalization techniques and cavity method.
