  • Accretion onto Supermassive Black Holes, insights from JWST
    Black Holes are for most of their life in a dormant state, and yet, just a small amount of accreted mass would be needed for them to trigger the most luminous Quasars. We find however that there is plenty of matter ready to fall into the accretion disc in most galactic nuclei, why then are most of them fainter than expected? I will discus the

  • Achieving sub-milliarcecond angular resolutions in optical wavelengths with Cherenkov telescopes at ORM
    The intensity interferometry technique enables telescopes to achieve exceptionally high angular resolutions, on the order of hundreds of microarcseconds, in the optical range. I will explain how, in contrast to traditional phase interferometry, this technique readily accommodates blue and near UV wavelengths, and is straightforward to expand to

  • Chemical abundances as efficient tracers for studying galactic evolution
    With the detailed measurements available for our Galaxy and the local volume, the Milky Way and its satellites are a unique laboratory for the galactic archaeology field, which is trying to reconstruct the galactic evolution history from fossil records. In this context, spectroscopy is one of the primary tools to explore the physics of the Universe

  • How will the world(s) end?
    Less than 30 years ago, we did not know whether planets exist outside our solar system. Fast forward to 2024, astronomers have discovered well over 5000 planets orbiting other stars similar to our Sun, including some that may have the right conditions to host life. As we learned that the formation of planets seems to go hand-in-hand with the birth
