|Please describe your job in only one sentence and tell us what the most important goal of this work is.
|I evaluate simulation model bias and uncertainties and I develop an algorithm able to optimise the parameters of any complex model to fit the best the experimental data
|How did you get into this research/work field?
|Becoming astrophysicist was a child’s dream for me.
|What would be the greatest discovery you would like to see in your life time?
|If I could I would like to see the first long live fusion reaction with a gain factor above 1
|You work for the NCCR PlanetS. What do you think will the NCCR enable you to do you couldn’t do without it?
|The NCCR should allow me to finish my algorithm about model optimisation
