Research

My research focusses on the foundational aspects of cosmology, such as the nature of dark matter, dark energy, gravity and inflation. I mainly work on testing cosmological models with experiments and observational data, such as from—but not only—weak lensing and galaxy clustering surveys. My current effort aims at finding novel observables or combinations of known observables to exploit the large-scale structure information at its best. At the moment, I pursue three different projects with this multi-wavelength, synergistic approach:

  1. The cross-correlation between gamma-ray anisotropies and direct gravitational probes of dark matter (e.g. clustering or lensing), to detect dark matter particles.
  2. The multi-tracer technique, to overcome cosmic variance and detect primordial non-Gaussianity and relativistic effects on scales near and beyond the cosmological horizon.
  3. The use of radio cosmic shear in combination with traditional optical/near-IR weak lensing, to mitigate systematic effects and the spurious contamination from intrinsic alignments.

I am an active member of various international collaborations, like the European Space Agency's Euclid satellite, the Square Kilometre Array (SKA). In the Euclid Theory Working Group, I coordinate the `Dark Matter & Particle Cosmology' Working Package, besides being part of the Editorial Board. For the SKA Cosmology Working Group, I coordinated the `Cosmology on the Largest Scales' Science Case, and I now co-lead the `Synergies' Focus Group. I am also part of: the EMU radio continuum survey collaboration, within whose Cosmology Working Group I am one of the corresponding authors for its forthcoming first science review; the European Space Agency's gravitational-wave space-based mission LISA; the future cosmic microwave background mission COrE+; and the SuperCLASS collaboration, which will soon deliver state-of-the-art radio cosmic shear data.

About

I was born in Genova, la Superba, the same day in which, thirty-two years later, the first gravitational wave ever would be heard. I studied physics and bagna caôda in Turin; I experienced all the bittersweetness of saudade and radio cosmology in Lisbon; I followed in the Smith's and Joy Division's footsteps in the radio band in Manchester; and I eventually went back to Turin thanks to Rita Levi Montalcini.

Pondering on big questions and trying to answer some of them with cosmology still leaves me time to do other things as well. I love knowing new stuff, and I seem to love especially the stuff that doesn't really do anything: philosophy, anthropology, poetry, romance studies and philology, the history of the early Roman Republic, the matter of Britain and the Arthurian cycle. I adore cooking—and eating and drinking, ça va sans dire. In this, I'm particularly lucky, for I have too many good friends, whom I most likely don't deserve but for whom I can at least cook at the best of my skills. I listen to ancient and classical music, power metal, jazz and blues, and Italian songwriters, such as, above all, my fellow citizen Fabrizio De Andrè. I'm not very good at dancing, but nonetheless I do enjoy folk dances and swing and lindy-hop. Alas, I'm not a sport person, but I find skiing and surfing a lot of fun, and I absolutely love hiking.

I'm married to an artist, craftswoman and illustrator, with whom I hope, one day or another, to publish a book—my words, her drawings.
