My name is Ugo Niccolò Di Carlo and I’m a PhD student at University of Insubria and INFN Padova. I got both my bachelor and master degrees at University of Padova, with a thesis on the tidal disruption of young star clusters near the galactic center, and on the rotation of young star clusters, respectively. Currently, I work on the formation of gravitational wave sources in young star clusters. I investigate how dynamics may lead to the formation of binary compact objects with different properties. To do so, I mainly use direct summation N-body simulations, but I also have some experience with hydrodynamical codes.
Besides science, I love cooking, music, photography and videogames.
