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 the Technical University of Vienna (Austria).

 

My research interests include:

  • Asymptotic symmetries in General Relativity: 
    Bondi-Metzner-Sachs (BMS) symmetries for asymptotically flat space-times and their extensions.

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

  • Celestial and Carrollian holography: which aims towards a holographic formulation of quantum gravity in asymptotically flat space in terms of a 2d `celestial CFT' or a 3d `Carrollian theory' living at null infinity.

  • Other topics: Soft theorems, twistors, gravitational wave observation (memory effects)...
