I am currently a postdoc in Cambridge, with a Stephen Hawking fellowship.

My research interests range from string phenomenology to the physics of the early Universe.

I am a collaborator of the GRChombo project: I am currently using this code to simulate preheating in the early Universe.

I launched along with a few collaborators the UHF-GW initiative, for the development of ultra-high-frequency gravitational wave science, see our webpage.

You can find my publications at this link.

I've recently written a popular article for The Conversation about gravitational waves from the early Universe.
