My scientific interests lie at the intersection of Cosmology, Gravitation and Astroparticle Physics. My research combines theoretical work with modern statistical data-analysis techniques to constrain the properties of the Universe and address fundamental questions about its origin, composition and evolution. In particular I use the relic light from the Big Bang and the large scale structure of the Universe to study and test the properties of gravity, the nature of fundamental interactions among particles and the identity of the dark sector. This often leads me to investigate extensions of General Relativity and the Standard Model of elementary particles and to analyze their cosmological implications.

My research is about the study and the applications of effective field theories in high-energy physics both for phenomenological and formal analyses. In my phenomenology work this approach is used to asses the reach of future colliders on New-Physics searches, as well as to design new quantitative analyses, able to extract new relevant information from the current and future runs of LHC. My formal research focuses on studying the space of possible low-energy effective theories, with the scope of defining the low-energy criteria identifying the effective descriptions that can orginate from a complete theory.

I am interested in exactly solvable models and out-of-equilibrium physics of low-dimensional quantum systems. By using the algebraic approach, I have studied the complete spectra of quantum integrable lattice models. My research also concerns the interface between the classical/quantum integrability and mathematics, such as combinatorics and algebraic geometry.

My research interests concern the study of non-perturbative properties of gauge theories by means of numerical Monte Carlo simulations on the lattice. In particular, my focus is on the study of topology, Θ-dependence and 1/N expansion both in QCD and in QCD-related theories, such as large-N SU(N) Yang-Mills theories and 2d CP(N-1) models. Recently, I also developed an interest in quantum computation and i joined the activities of the QuBiPF collaboration.

I am largely interested both in Physical and in Mathematical applications of supergeometry, with an eye towards integration theory. On the Physical side this includes Group Manifold Lagrangians, BV formalism, Wilson Operators, Higher Gauge Theories etc. On the Mathematical side this includes foundational questions such as the existence and formalisation of "Pseudoforms", cohomology theory on superalgebras, supergroups, PCO's and projections on Supermanifolds, etc.

My research activity focuses on the study of conformal field theories, in regards of their properties in momentum space and their application in different areas of Theoretical Physics. In addition to deepen the study of conformal field theories and their applications, I am mainly interested in cosmology, gravity and scattering amplitudes and in the possible links to establish between these.
