In this page you find presentations and papers I have written with the purpose of reaching out to the general public, space enthusiasts and proud grandmas. Help yourself! Unfortunately most of them are in Italian.
For the 2017 edition of the Maths Week at the University of Pisa, I gave a talk about maths in space missions.
I wrote an article on the Mathematics of Space Travels for the 5th number of the Open Days Magazine published by the Department of Mathematics of the University of Pisa, in 2017. It's meant to be read by high school students, so knock yourself out!
One night in Lucca I had the pleasure to talk to a crowd about my job and how maths can help explore the Solar System.
Once again in Lucca, this time in the fabulous foyer of Teatro del Giglio, I had the opportunity to talk to regular citizens about mathematics and space science (in Italian).
Another theatre for a nice talk with enthusiastic students about the mathematics of space exploration (in Italian).
For the 2020 edition of the Math Week at University of Pisa I was lecturer of a mini-course on space mechanics for high school students. Here are the notes of the course (in Italian).
My first public talk in the CoViD-19 era was online, for the Global Virtual Workshop of the Stardust-R project. The upside is that it was recorded, therefore available for the whole world! The title is "The Next Decade of Solar System Exploration", enjoy!
