Geophysicist and interested in every kind of exploration and activity to get in touch with nature, from speleology to canyoning, from climbing to divings and, more recently, on cycle excursions with my mountain bike, I started my university studies looking at the stars and at the universe by getting my undergraduate degree in physics at the University of Cagliari. I then moved more closely to the Earth, by attending my master in Exploration and Applied Geophysics at the University of Pisa.
I’m now a PhD student in Earth Science at the University of Florence and I keep on my research at the INGV of Pisa. I’m focused on the application of Machine Learning and, in particular, Deep Learning techniques, to the study of earthquakes.

B.Sc in Physics at the University of Cagliari ( 2011 ). Thesis title: “ Rotating magnetic dipole emission and neutron stars minimum rotation period ”

M.Sc in Exploration and Applied Geophysics at the University of Pisa ( 2018 ). Thesis title:
“ The shallow, shear wave velocity structure beneath the VIRGO gravitational antenna from dense-array recordings of regional earthquakes”
