Education

2012: qualified for the position of maitre de conferences in French universities.

2010: PhD in Geophysics, School of Mechanics of Fluids and Solids, University of Genoa.

2006: "Laurea" (B.Sc.+M.Sc.) in Geological Sciences (with emphasis on Geophysics) at the University of Genoa

Research experiences

2014-present: Postdoc at Niels Bohr Institute, Solid Earth Geophysics group, University of Copenhagen (Prof. K. Mosegaard). Current research regards the development of a combined geophysical and geostatistical inversion method in the framework of a probabilistic approach (Markov Chain Monte Carlo) for reservoir modeling and related uncertainty analysis. Other topics include the study of thermo-compositional structure of Earth's mantle using inverse Monte Carlo methods combined with thermodynamic modeling.

2014: Academic guest (visitor) at ETH Zurich for three months in the Seismology and Geodynamics group - Prof. D. Giardini and Dr. Amir Khan, working on the project "Unveiling Earth's mantle structure from stochastic full waveform inversion and thermodynamic modeling".

2012-2014: Postdoc in the Mathematical and Computational Geoscience group, National Space Institute, Technical University of Denmark (DTU) (Prof. K. Mosegaard).

2011-2012: Postdoc in the Seismology Group at University of Genoa (Prof. D. Spallarossa).

2007-2010: PhD Candidate, School of Mechanics of Fluids and Solids, Dip.Te.Ris. University of Genoa, focusing on inverse problems in geophysics (potential fields and seismic tomography).

2009: Visitor at ETH Zurich, Earth and Planetary Magnetism Group (Prof. A. Jackson).

Programming skills

Extensive experience in programming for scientific computing, including parallel programming tools like OpenMPI/OpenMP. Usually working in a GNU/Linux environment (Debian).

Known programming languages: Fortran 90-2008, Julia, Python, C, shell scripting (Bash), C++, Octave/Matlab
