Dr Marco Pignatari

SL

Summary

I was awarded a PhD in astrophysics by the University of Torino (Italy) in 2006, and went on to work as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Keele (UK), the University of Victoria (Canada), the University of Basel (Switzerland) and the Konkoly Observatory (Hungary).

I am a member of several international collaborations, including NuGrid, the UK network BRIDGCE as well as JINA-CEE, the COST Action ChETEC.
