Interessi di ricerca:
Cosmology, numerical simulations.
Using cosmological simulation I study the properties of dark matter haloes  to understand how they influence the process of structure formation. In particular, we compare the halo properties with the theoretical predictions given by the ellipsoidal collapse model, trying to follow from the very beginning the whole process that led to the present day matter distribution.

Titolo tesi:
Ellipsoidal collapse of dark matter haloes in cosmological simulation
