I am a postdoctoral researcher in mathematical physics at the Institut des Hautes Études Scientifiques, France, funded by the Huawei Young Talents Program, and a member of the UNIVERSE+ collaboration.

From September 2020 to September 2024, I conducted my doctoral studies under the supervision of Prof. Marcos Mariño at the University of Geneva, Switzerland, funded by the ERC Synergy Grant ReNewQuantum. I was also affiliated with the National Centre of Competence in Research SwissMAP and a member of the Scientific Council of the International Conference Centre SwissMAP Research Station in Les Diablerets, Switzerland.

I am interested in the many facets of mathematical and theoretical high-energy physics, particularly the mathematical structures and dualities arising in quantum field and string theories. My most recent work focuses on the non-perturbative aspects of topological string theory and complex Chern-Simons theory and the interplay of resurgence, strong-weak duality, and quantum modularity. Other topics of interest are the number-theoretic properties of Calabi-Yau manifolds, algebraic and geometric structures in scattering amplitudes, effective field theory techniques, and model-building and physics probes beyond the Standard Model.

Contributed to the design of an experimental framework for detecting muon-specific light Dark Sector particles produced via muons bremsstrahlung in proton beam-dump experiments. Implemented a simulation of the proposed scenario exploiting the secondary muon flux from the proton beam dump. Predicted the sensitivity reach in the parameter space of the exotics for the experiment NA62 in beam-dump mode and the proposed experiment SHiP using programming language C++, data analysis software ROOT, and simulation software MadGraph5_aMC@NLO. Supervised by Dr Babette Döbrich (CERN).

Collaborated with Prof Francis Brown (University of Oxford) on the application of motivic Galois theory to the study of Feynman integrals in perturbative QFT, specifically investigating the motivic Galois coaction and factorisation theorems for scalar Feynman graphs with non-generic kinematics. Collaborated with Prof Francesco Riva (University of Geneva) on EFT constraints arising from fundamental assumptions of UV consistency, specifically investigating the restrictions placed by (beyond-)positivity bounds on (beyond-)Horndeski theories of modified gravity. Attended courses on Random Matrix Theory.

Contributed to a Deep Learning predictive model for preventative maintenance of large infrastructures equipped with alarm nets. Project implemented using Bayesian Neural Networks and programming language R and customized to fit the specific needs of the commissioning telecom company. Pangea Formazione is a Big Data Analytics and AI company providing customised software for management consulting and training.

Contributed to the development of a Monte Carlo optical simulation of the Small-Angle Calorimeter of PADME’s detector using simulation software Geant4 and programming language C++. Characterised the performance of a single PbF2 crystal attached to a Hamamatsu R13478UV photomultiplier tube with focus on time and energy resolutions using data analysis software ROOT. PADME (Positron Annihilation into Dark Matter Experiment) is a positron-on-target collision experiment searching for dark photon production at high intensity at the DAFNE Beam Test Facility. Supervised by Prof Mauro Raggi (Sapienza University of Rome).
