Activities

Born in Erice (TP) on 1979, obtain his Master degree on 2002 and his PhD in Astronomy on 2006 in Bologna. As a post-doc he worked at the Astronomy Department of the University of Bologna (2006-2007), at the Instituto di Astrofisica de Canarias (2007-2010), at the INAF Osservatorio di Padova (2010-2012) and at the INAF Osservatorio di Bologna (2012-2016). Since December 2016 he is researcher at the INAF Osservatorio di Astrofisica e Scienza dello Spazio of Bologna. His research activity covers both observational and theoretical aspects of the stellar astrophysics. In particular he worked on the stellar populations in globular clusters, binary and variable stars, internal dynamics of collisional stellar systems and accretion events in the Milky Way.
