I am Research Associate of the Gravity Exploration Institute and I am a member of the LIGO Scientific Collaboration. My expertise concern experimental physics research. 

During my PhD I worked in the Advanced Virgo Thermal Compensation System (TCS), the subsystem devoted to the correction of the optical aberrations. I was involved in the commissioning for O2 and O3 observing run, and to the development of the TCS upgrades in view of O4 and O5. 

At Cardiff University, I am involved in the setting up of a table-top experiment to investigate quantization of space-time, scalar field dark matter and ultra-high frequency gravitational waves.
