I have developed my research activity in the areas of Nuclear Physics and Astrophysics, being focused, in particular, on the following topics: Nuclear Many-Body Problem: - Brueckner-Hartree-Fock approach of Nuclear and Hypernuclear Matter. Dense and Hot Matter Equation of State: - Hyperonic matter - Quark matter - Spin polarized matter. Neutron Star Evolution: - Neutrino trapping in dense matter - Transport properties in neutron matter. Isospin-rich Nuclear Matter: - Nuclear Symmetry Energy - Nuclear liquid-gas phase transition - Neutron Matter. Hypernuclear Physics: - Hypernuclear structure with realistic hyperon-nucleon forces - Hyperons & neutron drip line. Hadron Physics: - Hadron resonances: free space & in-medium properties.
