Biographical Sketch

Daniele Foresti (in the picture, in one of his common, but not always fruitful, introspective moments) was born in February 1984 in Rome, Italy. He started his studies in Computer Engineering, with a Bachelor thesis in nonlinear optics (Ultrafast photonics Laboratory, Università Sapienza di Roma). He switched later to a Master in Energy Engineering. His master thesis (in collaboration with the Energy and Process Department of NTNU, Norway) targeted the preliminary design and CFD validation of a Ultra Micro Gas Turbine (UMGT). His interest for physics brought him to work in CERN for an internship during the summer of the 2008. The experience convinced him that Switzerland was the right place for his PhD. And yes, eventually, he received it.
