Curriculum Studiorum

In February 2006 I defended my thesis, entitled "Spectroscopic investigation of collisional molecular alignment in supersonic beams expansion" and afterwards I received the PhD degree in Physics from the Department of Physics of the University of Trento. The thesis work has been carried out under the supervision of Dr. Mario Scotoni and Dr. Salvatore Iannotta (CNR).

In September 2002 I received (from the University of Trento) the "Laurea" (Master) degree in Physics, discussing the thesis "Setup and first measurements of a tandem time-of-flight mass spectrometer for ion - neutral reactions studies" under the supervision of Prof. Davide Bassi.
