About Me
I am an astrophysicist, working now intermittently at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics in Cambridge, MA (where I worked full time for 11 year, from 1996 to 2007) as senior scientist, and based in Rome (Italy) where I am a permanent staff scientist of the Italian National Institute of Astrophysics. My main work interests are Cosmology, with particular emphasis on the "Universe missing matter", and the super-massive black holes at the center of galaxies, the so called Active Galactic Nuclei. The house we rent in Medford has been our family house from 2000 to 2007. From 2007 I lived in the house only intermittently, subletting to colleagues from my US institute. From September of this year I will spend two sabbatical years in Europe, and our Medford house is therefore available for rent for either multiple short-term (3-6 months each) periods, or for longer (up to 2 years) periods.
