Proposals for thesis
1. Bose-Einstein condensates and BCS-BEC crossover with ultracold atoms and superconductors.

2. Quantum entanglement and quantum optics.

3. Ultracold atoms in optical lattices: Hubbard and Bose-Hubbard models.

Curriculum Vitae
I was born in Padova (14-05-1967). I got the M.Sc. in Physics at the University of Padova (marks 110/110) in 1991 and the Ph.D. in Physics (with honors) at the University of Florence in 1995.

From 2011 I am an Associate Professor of Theoretical Physics of Condensed Matter at the Department of Physics and Astronomy "Galileo Galilei" of the University of Padova. I have the Italian National Scientific Habilitation to Full Professor of Theoretical Physics of Condensed Matter (from 2013 to 2019).

From 2013 to 2016, and now from 2017 to 2020, I am a elected member of the Scientific Committee of Area 2 (Physical Sciences) of the University of Padova.

From 2013 to 2017 I am the elected coordinator (president) of the B.Sc. in Optics and Optometrics of the University of Padova.

From 2016 to 2017 I am an elected member of the governing board of the School of Science, University of Padova.

Previously I was postdoctoral fellow of several institutions: Complutense University of Madrid, University of Maribor, University of Padova, National Institute for the Physics of Condensed Matter (INFM), University of Milan. I was also adjunct professor in the following Universities: Padova, Modena and Reggio Emilia, Milan, Ca Foscari of Venice, Free University of Bozen. From 2000 to 2008 I had a permanent position of teacher of mathematics and physics in the high schools (always on leave of absence without pay). From 2003 al 2011 I was a researcher of the National Research Council (CNR).

My fields of research are condensed matter theory and statistical physics. In particular I study nonlinear phenomena and macroscopic quantum effects (like superfluidity and superconductivity) in ultracold atomic gases and other many-body systems. I have written more than 180 scientific papers in peer-reviewed journals. Up to now these papers got more than 3350 citations and my h-index is 31 according to Web of Knowledge (Thomson-Reuters), it is 29 according to Scopus (Elsevier), and it is 36 according to Google Scholar (Google).
