Personal profile

Biography

I am a Senior Research Fellow at the Internation Centre for Radio Astronomy Research, The University Western Australia.

My research is in the area of observational extragalactic astronomy, and my main interest is the study of the physical properties of galaxies and their dependence on redshift and environment using large, multi- wavelength datasets. The multi-wavelength approach is at the foundation of my research activity, as it is the only way to trace all the baryonic constituents of galaxies and to reveal how the Universe formed and evolves. I am an expert on the study of the interstellar medium and environmental effects in nearby galaxies, and I contributed to the success of several large legacy surveys with ground- and space-based facilities (e.g., GALEX, Herschel, Arecibo, AAT).

I obtained a joint Ph.D. at Milano Bicocca University (Italy) and Universite de Marseille Provence (France). After the Ph.D., before taking on my current position at ICRAR, I have worked as a postdoctoral fellow at Cardiff University, at the European Southern Observatory and Swinburne University.
