Research interests: My research activity concerns magnetism and superconductivity in condensed matter from an experimental perspective. I have been researching on superconductors, both conventional (lead nanoparticles) and unconventional (iron-based oxy-pnictides). In particular, I have focused on the microscopic study of electronic phase diagrams and of the coexistence of magnetism and superconductivity as a function of different tuning parameters. I have studied physical phenomena characteristic of the superconducting phase as well, such as the vortex motion and the amplitude and/or phase fluctuations of the superconducting order parameter. I have worked on electronic phase diagrams and magnetic properties of strongly-correlated electron systems such as cuprates and iridium-based oxides. Finally, I have investigated the exotic magnetism arising in geometrically-frustrated magnets on tri-dimensional lattices (spin-ice, molybdenum-based pyrochlores). See full CV for further details.

Teaching: I am currently teaching two courses. 1- "Struttura della Materia", exercises (three-year Bachelor programme in Physics). 2- "Complementi di Struttura della Materia", module on superconductivity (two-year M.Sci. programme in Physical Sciences).
