Stefano Torniamenti

I am a PhD student in Astronomy at the Università degli Studi di Padova. My research focuses on the study of young star clusters, with particular attention to the formation and evolution of their binary black hole population. The main goal of my project is to build a new approach to investigate the interplay among dynamics, stellar and binary evolution, and hydrodynamics in these still poorly understood stellar systems. Before starting my PhD in Padova, I graduated in Physics at Milano University, where I completed my Bachelor and Master Thesis under the supervision of Giuseppe Bertin. In my master thesis, I studied the processes of energy equipartition and mass segregation in globular clusters by means of self-consistent models.
