Research activities

His research interests focus on theoretical and observational cosmology and astroinformatics. In particular, he engages in the study of the large-scale structure of the Universe and its cosmological implications. Specifically, his studies deal with the clustering of cosmic tracers, such as galaxies, galaxy clusters and quasars. A substantial part of his scientific activity concerns the implementation of numerical codes for cosmological analyses, which converged in the free software libraries named CosmoBolognaLib. Involved in several scientific projects, both national and international, he is carrying out research activities particularly in the VIPERS, XXL, KiDS and Euclid missions.


Scientific publications

91 refereed publications, 7 proceedings and 1 instrumental report.
