I am currently a post-doc at the Leiden Observatory (The Netherlands) within the group of Xander Tielens working on Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs) in astrophysical environments. I obtained a Master in Physics from Universit√° di Padova (Italy) in 2005 and a Ph.D in Astrophysical Chemistry (2012) from the The University of Nottingham (UK), under the supervision of Peter J. Sarre.
