my portraitFor a complete Curriculum Vitae see here.

I received a PhD and M.Sc. degree (both in Physics) at the University of Florence (Italy), respectively in February 2008 and April 2004. From May 2004 to December 2004 (before my PhD started) I had a fellowship there to work on random lasing.
From January 2008 to April 2010 I had a postdoctoral position at the European Laboratory for Non-Linear Spectroscopy (LENS) on the project “Transport of light in disordered systems”.
From April 20010 to December 2010 I was a postdoctoral fellow in the COPS group at the University of Twente (The Netherlands) on the project “Breakdown of universal transport: is there symmetry between absorption and gain?”.
From December 2010 to December 2012 I held a joint position as Researcher at the University of Florence and as Guest scientist at the University of Twente.
From March to August 2013 I worked as a post-doc at the Institute Langevin and in September 2013 I started an appointment as a Lecturer at the University of Exeter, where I now lead a research group.
