“The foundation of General Relativity appeared to me then, and it still does, the greatest feat of human thinking about nature, the most amazing combination of philosophical penetration, physical intuition, and mathematical skill. It appealed to me like a great work of art.”
Max Born (1962)
Hi there. I am an assistant professor at the Institute for Gravitational Wave Astronomy at the University of Birmingham, UK (about to move to the University of Milano-Bicocca, Italy). My research is in relativistic astrophysics, I study the impact of Einstein’s general relativity on the astrophysical world.
Besides gravity and all the rest, I love mountains (basically everything up there: hiking, climbing, skiing, ski touring…), playing football (I mean good Italian “soccer” of course!) and rock music (Bruce is the Boss!).
