ABOUT ME

I am an Assistant Professor in Theoretical High-Energy Physics at SISSA (Trieste, Italy). Before that, I was a Post-doc at Harvard University (USA) (Black Hole Initiative & Center for the Fundamental Laws of Nature) and at the Technical University of Vienna (Austria).

 

My research interests include:

  • Asymptotic symmetries and charges in General Relativity: 
    Bondi-Metzner-Sachs symmetries for asymptotically flat space-times and their extensions, as well as their relationship with gravitational memory effects

  • Black hole physics:  near-horizon symmetries, entropy, soft hair

  • Celestial holography, i.e. the recent proposal of 
    reconsidering the S-matrix as a correlation function in a celestial two-dimensional CFT which aims towards a formulation of flat space holographyconformally soft particles;

  • Other topics: Carrollian physics, three-dimensional gravity and its massive deformations,  warped deformations of AdS spaces, cosmological horizons, membrane paradigm,...
