Under the supervision of Andy O'Bannon and together with Pietro Capuozzo, we are currently interested in computing the holographic entanglement entropy of CFTs with defects. In the context of String Theory and AdS/CFT, these are holographically described by brane configurations in which some branes end on others.

The curious among us might ask: "why do we care?". If one were to ask me this question I would probably roll my eyes in disbelief before suggesting the following:

Astrophotography consists in capturing images of stellar objects. The scope of possible targets ranges from the whole Milky Way, with landscape astrophotography, to the faintest and smallest objects in the night sky, with deep-sky astrophotography. My main interest relies in the latter. Whenever I find the time I set up my telescope to capture some of these faint celestial objects. Below you can see four pictures I took with a DSLR through my 1500mm focal length telescope.

I also enjoy programming quite a bit. I am clearly far from being a good programmer but I have, nevertheless, experienced programming in many languages: C++, JS, Python, Wolfram Language.
Here a few examples of projects I have coded:


I've been practicing gymnastics for many years now. I'm not immensely good at it but I enjoy it, and that's all that matters.


Blender is a free software for modeling, animating and rendering. One can use it to create photorealist art or fun 2D animations.
Lately, I haven't been using Blender that much but here's my favorite render from a few years ago.
