Studi

11 Marzo 2005, PhD in Theoretical Physics
Università degli Studi di Bari, Bari, Italy.
Thesis title: Aspects of Color Superconductivity
Thesis advisor: prof. Giuseppe Nardulli.
Abstract of PhD thesis
In this PhD thesis I summarize my work about Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) at high density and low temperature. In these particular conditions of temperature and density deconfinement is expected to occur, and because of the attractive interaction among quarks in the antisymmetric color channel, normal Fermi spheres are expected to be replaced by a superconductive state of Cooper pairs. My work has focused on discovery and study of instabilities in superconducting quark matter, and on the study of inhomogeneous color superconductivity and its implications for the physics of compact stellar objects.

23 Luglio 2001, Master Degree in Physics, with score 110/110 cum laude.
Università degli Studi di Bari, Bari, Italy.
Thesis title: Effetti convettivi e diffusivi nelle microemulsioni (in Italian language).
Thesis advisor: prof. Giuseppe Gonnella.
