Role: PSM Member

I am currently a Ph.D. student at the University of Padua (Italy) with a fellowship at INAF – Astronomical Observatory of Padua. I work on 1D modeling of terrestrial exoplanets, as well as handling data from various sources and catalogs. I am also involved in biological laboratory experiments to assess the habitability of extreme environments such as Super-Earths.

Within the PLATO Consortium, I am going to use Exo­MerCat, an exoplanet catalog which I developed, for the identification of known planets and candidates in the PLATO field for further characterization or confirmation.
