Stefania Salvadori

Welcome to my webpage! I am an Associate Professor in Physics and Cosmology at the University of Florence, where I moved in June 2017 after I have been awarded the prestigious Rita Levi Montalcini Fellowship a three-years tenure track position to recruit young italian researchers working abroad. Before proudly coming back to Italy I spent seven years in north European countries to perform my research activity. After obtaining my PhD in Astrophysics at the International School for Advanced Studies/SISSA, (Trieste, Italy) I moved to the Kapteyn Institute of Groningen, in The Netherlands, with two prestigious fellowships: the NOVA post-doctoral fellow and the VENI grant 2012. In 2015, I moved to Paris after awarding a Fellowship de l'Observatoire de Paris and an European Marie Sklodowska-Curie Grant hosted by the GEPI Laboratory. Unfortunately, I only spent one year in the stimulating GEPI Department and in the beautiful city of Paris. In 2018, I have been awarded the prestigious ERC Starting grant by the European Commission (around 1.2 million euros) for my project NEFERTITI (NEar-FiEld cosmology: Re-Tracing Invisible TImes). Thanks to this generous grant I am now starting to build-up my own research group to study the first stars and galaxies.


My main research interests are the nature of the first stars and of the first galaxies and their impact on the overall evolution of the Universe through the so-called feedback processes, such as the metal enrichment and the reionization of the Inter Galactic Medium. I am especially interested in studying the feedback imprints the first cosmic objects left in our own Milky Way Galaxy, which provides a unique laboratory to indirectly study the high redshift Universe.
