Research activities and Interests
The day I was born people were landing on the moon. Explore, discover, invent: reading the book of nature is my dream. I am a theoretical physicist, mainly interested in the study of fundamental aspects and of practical applications of Quantum Mechanics. My research activity has been chiefly devoted to quantum optics, quantum theory of measurement, quantum information theory, and foundations of quantum mechanics. I am an associate professor at the University of Pavia (Italy).
Some of the scientific interests I have recently pursued:
* Quantum parameter estimation: quantum positioning, quantum metrology, quantum imaging, quantum illumination, tomography.
* Quantum foundations: information-disturbance tradeoffs, quantum thermodynamics, quantum descriptions of closed timelike curves, quantum reference frames.
* Quantum information, computation, cryptography and communication.
* Entanglement theory and uses.
I am available to give divulgative talks on quantum mechanics and modern physics: a list of possible talks can be found here.
For example, here you can find a talk (in Italian) at the “Festival della Scienza di Genova”: La Scienza della Fantascienza dei viaggi nel tempo.
