I am an astrophysicist working as a postdoc on numerical simulations of galaxy clusters at the Physics and Astrophysics departement of the University of Bologna (DIFA). My main interests are: formation and evolution of haloes thorugh the study of their concentration and satellite properties, and High Performance Computing (HPC) re-engineering of gravity and hydrodynamic N-body solvers in order to run the next generation of high-resolution hydrodynamic simulations on cosmological volumes.
