During my studies, I specialised on quantum field theory, black hole physics, and modified theories of gravity. I decided to join the group investigating analogue gravity because I was intrigued by the prospect of realising and observing in the lab some of the most exciting predictions of modern theoretical physics.

I am currently working on the development of the black hole analogue in superfluid helium, with the goal of observing how some distinctive aspects of black holes in modified theory of gravity can find their way in the dynamics of this system.
