“A one-sided person that doesn't know a great deal”
2020 - Present
Postdoctoral Research Assistant
Danish Institute for Advanced Study, Odense, Denmark
Worked in artificial intelligence, and soon found out it is actually natural stupidity. Also, data science is not a science. It is statistics. Stop calling it that, seriously.
University of Oxford, Oxford, UK
Ditched the physics department and wandered around campus learning about philosophy, history, and AI.
2017 - 2020
Center for Cosmology and Particle Physics, Odense, Denmark
Same as below but now in the "experience" section.
Sincrotrone Elettra, Trieste, Italy
Honestly, I have no idea what I was doing here. Something about characterization of new materials based on Low-Energy Electron Diffraction? Something like that.
2015 - 2016
International Center for Theoretical Physics, Trieste, Italy
Learned string theory in 6 months. Almost went insane. Managed to collect my ramblings on Calabi-Yau spaces in a presentable form and finally graduated.
Preparing a Curriculum Vitae
What is required?
Fill out the application
and attach a curriculum vitae.
Regardless of life’s length
its outline should be short.
Mandatory are conciseness and selectivity.
Substitution of addresses for landscapes
and firm dates for shaky memories.
Of all the loves only the marital will do,
and of all the children only those actually born.
More important than whom you know is who knows you.
Mention travel only if abroad.
Membership in what but without the whatfors.
Honors but without the wherefores.
Write as though you have never talked with yourself
and have always steered clear of yourself.
Say nothing about your dogs, cats and birds,
your precious keepsakes, friends and dreams.
Rather the price than the value, the title than the contents.
Rather the size of the shoes than where he is going,
the person they take you for.
Attach a snapshot too, with one ear exposed.
What counts is its shape, not what it hears.
And what does it hear?
The clatter of machines turning paper into pulp.
2017 - 2020
Doctor of Philosophy (Fundamental Physics)
University of Southern Denmark, Odense, Denmark
Miraculously got a PhD in cosmology working on crazy stuff like gravitational atoms and gravitational absorption lines.
Visiting Student (Mathematical Physics)
University of Hamburg, Hamburg, Germany
Wandered around in Hamburg doing anything but attending classes.
2013 - 2016
Master of Science (Theoretical Physics)
Università degli Studi di Trieste, Trieste, Italy
Wasted 2 more years trying to be top of class. Succeeded again.
2010 - 2013
Bachelor of Science (Physics)
Università degli Studi di Salerno, Salerno, Italy
Wasted 3 years trying to be top of class. Succeeded. Accidentally learned math and physics.
