I am a second year PhD student in the Centre for Geophysical and Astrophysical Fluid Dynamics, and I am in receipt of a studentship for the 'Modelling the Partially Ionised Solar Chromosphere' project, under the supervision of Dr Andrew Hillier.

I graduated from the Università degli Studi di Cagliari in 2018 with an MSci Physics focused on solar radioastronomy.

My research interests are in computational MHD and its applications to phenomena occurring in partially ionised plasmas such as the ones in solar chromosphere, and in the differences between fully ionised and partially ionised environments arising in magnetic reconnection-driven events .
