I am currently working on Terrestrial Gamma-ray Flashes with data from the AGILE satellite and waiting for ASIM data; my work aims at better determining the relationship between lightning and TGF, and the role of the latter in meteorology and atmospheric chemistry.

I graduated in astronomy at the University of Torino with a thesis in collaboration with the Pierre Auger Observatory. I studied ELVES, a kind of Transient Luminous Events, and discovered a series of anomalies that still have to be addressed.

I also have a special interest in studying these same subjects on other planets of the Solar System.
