 +===== Biography =====
 +I completed my Ph.D. in 2014 at the Universit√† degli Studi di Milano, in Italy, under the supervision of Prof. Giuseppe Bertin. My Thesis was devoted to the study of the structure and dynamics of globular clusters; in particular, I studied the role played by several dynamical ingredients,​ such as anisotropy in velocity space, internal rotation, and external tidal field, in determining the dynamics of these stellar systems. In 2010 I obtained my M.Sc. degree in Physics at the same institution,​ with a dissertation focussed on the study of the dynamics of star clusters in different relaxation conditions.
 +I moved to the University of Surrey in May 2014, to work as a Newton International Research Fellow.
