Through the many years of my sailing career, during which I won two Italian titles and participated at seven European and World championships representing the Italian National team, I acquired experience, both practical and theoretical about meteorology, analysis of the formation of the winds, the study of tides, astronomy and celestial navigation. Some of these are com- plementary to my academic studies concerning the fields of fluid dynamics, oceanography and physics.

Academic Positions

Research Associate
(December 2022 – current)
Researcher at Imperial College London in the [D*]stratify project, which addresses the outstanding problem of predicting the thermal stratifications that are produced by non-uniform heating and cooling of a confined space.

Postdoctoral researcher
(September 2020 – December 2021)
Postdoc researcher at the LEGI laboratory in Grenoble in the Simons Collaboration on wave turbulence. I work in the group of Nicolas Mordant on gravity waves turbulence study by means of numerical simulations and laboratory experiments.

Postdoctoral researcher
(November 2019 – August 2020)
Postdoc researcher at the BTU Cottbus-Senftenberg in the group of Professor Uwe Harlander.
