The formation of the first galaxies in the Universe is the new frontier of both galaxy formation and reionization studies. In fact, we will soon directly...
TalkA fierce new challenge: unveil the connection between the first galaxies and reionization
PublicationA Forecast of the Sensitivity on the Measurement of the Optical Depth to Reionization with the GroundBIRD Experiment
We compute the expected sensitivity on measurements of optical depth to reionization for a ground-based experiment at Teide Observatory. We simulate polarized...
TalkA Hundred Years after: Gravitational Waves, Black Holes, GW150914
A discussion of the first observation ever of gravitational waves. Present detectors, future detectors, and the perspectives for gravitational wave astronomy.
PublicationA mean redshift of 2.8 for Swift gamma-ray bursts
The exceptionally high luminosities of gamma-ray bursts (GRBs), gradually emerging as extremely useful probes of star formation, make them promising tools for...
TalkA multi-wavelength approach to the properties of Extremely Red Galaxy populations: star formation rate and mass densities, AGN and dust content, and morphology
In this talk, I will cover our contribution to the study of extremely red galaxy (ERG) populations presenting a multi-wavelength analysis of these objects...
PublicationAn ionized superbubble powered by a protocluster at z = 6.5
We show herein that a proto-cluster of Ly α emitting galaxies, spectroscopically confirmed at redshift 6.5, produces a remarkable number of ionizing continuum...
PublicationAnisotropy of the cosmic microwave background and primordial nucleosynthesis: observational pillars of big bang cosmology.
The authors review recent results on the anisotropy of the cosmic microwave background and on primordial abundances of light-elements. These two key fields of...
PublicationConditions for Reionizing the Universe with a Low Galaxy Ionizing Photon Escape Fraction
We explore scenarios for reionizing the intergalactic medium with low galaxy ionizing photon escape fractions. We combine simulation-based halo mass–dependent...
TalkCosmic Microwave Background observations
In the first part of this talk I will present a historical review of the CMB observations, one of the most powerful cosmological probes. Following the first...
