As part of my research activity, I am involved in several projects funded by the European Union and other agencies.
Research Infrastructures FOR citizens in Europe (REINFORCE)
2019 – 2022
A Research & Innovation Project, supported by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 SWAFS “Science with and for Society” work programme. The project will create a series of cutting-edge citizen science projects on frontier Physics research, with citizen scientists making a genuine and valued contribution to managing the data avalanche. Within REINFORCE I am coordinating the Unit of Research at the University of Pisa and Work Package 3 “Gravitational wave hunt” demonstrator, that led to the GWitchHunters citizen science project.
NEw WindowS on the universe and technological advancements from trilateral EU-US-Japan collaboration (NEWS)
(2016 – 2023)
NEWS promotes the collaboration between European, US and Japanese research institutions in some key areas of fundamental physics. This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant agreeement No 734303. Within NEWS I coordinate the unit of the University of Pisa.
Machine Learning methods, from the multimessenger study of the Universe to seismic applications (PRA_UNIPI_2018)
2018 – 2020
The goal of the project is to use state-of-the-art Machine Learning methods to get deeper insight on LIGO and Virgo data and develop cutting-edge analysis for gravitational wave physics and cosmology. I am the PI of this Project at the University of Pisa.
New perspectives on the violent Universe: unveiling the physics of compact objects with joint observations of
gravitational waves and electromagnetic radiation (FIRB_2012)
2013 – 2016
The project served a growing need of synergy between
electromagnetic observations and gravitational wave detections, focusing on compact objects, the most promising sources of gravitational waves and extremely valuable natural laboratories. Within the project, I coordinate the Unit of Research of the University of Pisa
