I earned my MSc in physics at University of Pisa in September 2013. I graduated with a thesis on relativistic pair plasmas in extreme astrophysical contexts. During the summer of 2011 I took part in a project of summer school at Columbia University (NY) about the analysis of GRBs data from the Fermi Telescope. At the end of July 2013 I participated to an international school of Quantum Electronics at Erice in Sicily. I am interested in the study of high-energy astrophysics both from a theoretical and a numerical point of view. During my PhD I expect to learn all the necessary tools to address these issues.
