“Science is essentially an anarchic enterprise”

I am Associate Professor in Theoretical Physics at Bari University (Italy).
My research activities are focused in Theoretical Astroparticle Physics, at the interface between particle physics, astrophysics and cosmology. The leading idea of my research is to use astrophysical sources and the entire Universe as cosmic laboratories to probe the fundamental properties of weakly interacting slim particles (WISPs) like neutrinos, axions and dark photons. I got a significant expertise in characterizing the fascinating effects associated with neutrino flavor conversions in dense cosmic environments, like supernovae and the Early Universe.
I am also contributing to the exciting worldwide search for axions. In this context, I am extensively working in exploring astrophysical and cosmological signatures of these elusive particles.
