"(...) Yes, the fight
Against the false and the unfair
Was always worth it. So was gardening. Civilise."
W.H. Auden, Voltaire at Ferney

"Everything in our age conspires to turn the writer, and every other kind of artist as well, into a minor official [...] But in struggling against his fate he gets no help from his own side: that is, there is no large body of opinion which will assure him he is in the right."
G. Orwell, Polemic, No. 2, January 1946

My research interests include the application of quantum many-body theories, mainly to the atomic nuclei but also to other finite Fermi systems:

  • The nucleon-nucleon effective interaction. Nuclear Energy Density Functionals (EDFs) and link with ab initio nuclear theory.
  • Nuclear collective states. The nuclear Equation of State (EoS): incompressibility, symmetry energy.
  • Isospin symmetry in nuclei. Electromagnetic and weak processes. Astrophysical applications.
  • Exotic nuclei. Particle-vibration coupling. Cross sections for inelastic excitations.
  • Application of nuclear methods to electronic systems. Phonons and electron-phonon coupling.


TESI: contattare il docente.

I like to put here the link to an interesting post about
the "Pernicious Idea of Students as Customers".
Some may be more intrigued by advises to PhD students.
