Ugo Moschella graduated in Physics at Bologna University in 1985 and obtained a Ph. D. at the International School for Advanced Studies (ISAS) in Trieste in 1991. Subsequently, he carried out post-doctoral research at the Catholic University of Louvain-La-Neuve (Belgium), the University of Paris 7-Denis Diderot, the Theoretical Physics Division of the Atomic Energy Agency (CEA) - Saclay, (France), and the Institut of High Scientific Studies (IHES) - Bures-sur-Yvette, (France).

Since 1996 he has been a Researcher in theoretical physics at the Department of Chemical, Physical and Mathematical Sciences of the University of Insubria at Como.

Since 2001 he is an Associate Professor of Theoretical Physics at the same University. Since 1997, he has been the scientific secretary of the International Doctoral School in Relativity and Gravitation which is held yearly at Villa Olmo in Como.

Since 2000, he is a member of the scientific board of the Italian Society of Gravitation.

He is a referee for Physical Review and Physical Review Letters, Classical and Quantum Gravity, Journal of Physics, Journal of Mathematical Physics.


Research interests

Ugo Moschella's main research interests are in Quantum Field Theory. His contributions are concerned with the infrared problem in gauge theory, quantum field theory on curved spacetimes with special attention to de Sitter and anti-de Sitter field theories, and the role of diffeomorphism groups in quantum physics.
