I am a postdoctoral research scientist in the Department of Astronomy and the Columbia Astrophysics Laboratory at Columbia University, where I work on problems related to laboratory, space and astrophysical plasmas.

I was previously a postdoctoral research associate at the Department of Astrophysical Sciences of Princeton University and a long term visitor at the Theory Department of the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory.

I received my PhD in 2014 from the Politecnico di Torino working on fluid and gyrofluid models of magnetic reconnection.
