2010: PhD in Sciences at the ULB (Belgium). Thesis title: Le rôle des principes dans la construction des théories relativistes de Poincaré et Einstein. PhD Director: Prof. Pierre Marage. President of Jury: Prof. Marc Henneaux
2006: DEA en Sciences à l'Université Libre de Bruxelles
2001-2004: Researcher, member of the Space Mechanics Group of Pisa University (assegno di ricerca)
2000-2001: Researcher, member of the Space Mechanics Group of Pisa University (contratto di ricerca)
May 2000: Laurea degree in Mathematics (Celestial Mechanics) at Pisa University. The laurea degree thesis took place into the "GG: Galileo Galilei" project, proposed by the Space Mechanics Group of Pisa University, devoted to testing the Equivalence Principle in space. In my thesis I carried out a physical model to study tidal effects on the GG satellite and on its prototype on the ground (at the moment under construction in San Piero a Grado, at INFN laboratories, where it is operational).
