Olmo Piana

Olmo Piana, Italy, FSE

Olmo Piana got his bachelor degree in physics in 2013 in Torino, Italy, after which he started an Erasmus Mundus Master Program in Astrophysics. This European project gave him a first taste of the semi-nomadic life that eventually brought him to Groningen in 2017. Here he started a PhD in Astrophysics, focusing on modeling the co-evolution of supermassive black holes and their host galaxies in the very early phases of the universe. When he is not compulsively typing on a keyboard he enjoys hiking in the mountains – when in Italy – and looking for alternatives to it when in the Netherlands.
