Lorenzo V. Mugnai, PhD

Postdoctoral Research Associate at Cardiff University


Honorary Research Fellow at UCL

Research Associate at INAF-OAPa

Hi, welcome to my website. I am Postdoctoral Research Associate at Cardiff University. In the past years, I've been working as a Temporary Research Fellow and, before that, as a PhD student at "Sapienza" University of Rome under the supervision of Prof. Enzo Pascale. To get here, I first got my bachelor's degree in Physics and Astrophysics at the University of Florence in 2015, and then I graduated summa cum laude in Astronomy and Astrophysics at "Sapienza" University of Rome in 2017. 

My main research interests are mainly in the field of exoplanet characterization. Since exoplanets are difficult to study with our current technology, I focus my efforts on developing new numerical methods for data analysis and tool optimization. Over the years I have gained experience in the development and use of various tools and techniques, including atmospheric retrievals, end-to-end instrument simulators, instrument calibration and data detrending pipelines.
