Research

My research focuses on the investigation of the electron motion in matter, with particular interest in atoms, molecules, and interfaces. In my research, I employ the tools of ultrafast laser technology and develop pump-probe schemes to capture the electron dynamics in the targets under study with extremely high-temporal resolution, i.e., from femtosecond (1 fs = 10^-15 s) to attosecond (1 fs = 10^-18 s) time scale. Since 2021, I have been leading a research team that investigates the photo-induced electron dynamics involved in nuclear transitions.
