Clay Fellow, Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory
I am a BHI Fellow at Harvard University and a Clay Fellow at the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory. I received my Ph.D. in 2016 at the Scuola Normale Superiore in Pisa, the school of Enrico Fermi. I was proudly made in Italy.
My research aims at understanding the properties of the first black holes formed in the Universe. How did they form? What kind of radiation they emitted? How do we identify them? How did they evolve into the super-massive black holes found at the center of galaxies?
