I am an Assistant Professor in Ultrafast Science at the Institut National de la Recherche Scientifique, Energy, Material and Telecommunications (INRS-EMT), Varennes, QC, Canada.

Since 2021 I am 


I got my MSc in Physics Engineering (2011) and my Ph.D. in Physics (2014) at Politecnico di Milano, Italy. During my Ph.D. (reserach group of C. Dallera and E. Carpene, in collaboration with G. Cerullo), I performed ultrafast all-optical measurements (time-resolved reflectivity and magneto-optics) on ferromagnetic materials to study ultrafast light-induced modifications of the magnetization. In addition, I designed and built an innovative Yb-based TR-ARPES system and worked on 3D topological insulator.

During my postdoctorate in A. Damascelli's group (2015-2020) at the Stuart Blusson Quantum Matter Institute at the University of British Columbia (SBQMI-UBC), I studied ultrafast electronic dynamics in a variety of quantum materials, ranging from topological systems to high-temperature superconductors. In particular, I performed forefront ultrafast studies of cuprates superconductors via TR-ARPES. Furthermore, I  also performed equilibrium and out-of-equilibrium x-ray scattering measurements on cuprates with the ultimate goal to investigate the complex interplay between the charge-order and the superconductivity.
