Cristina Rimoldi

Post-Doc Fellow

cristina.rimoldi@emt.inrs.ca

Cristina Rimoldi obtained her Bachelor’s Degree in Physics in December 2011 at the Università degli Studi dell’Insubria (Como, Italy), defending the thesis “Thermality study of the stimulated Hawking effect”, under the supervision of Prof. Daniele Faccio (university of Glasgow, UK). Then in July 2014 she obtained her Master’s Degree (cum laude) in Physics, with specialization in Optics, discussing the thesis “Conservative and dissipative behaviour in lasers with optical injection”, under the supervision of Prof. Franco Prati (Università degli studi dell’Insubria). She moved to France for her PhD in October 2014 at the Université Cote d’Azur in Nice, where in particular, she worked at the Institut de Physique de Nice (INPHYNI – previously known as INLN) under the supervision of Prof. Giovanna Tissoni. Her thesis, defended on December 2017 and titled “Extreme events in extended nonlinear optical cavities”, studied, from a numerical and theoretical point of view, the occurrence of extreme events and rogue waves in different laser systems with multiple spatial degrees of freedom and their relationship with dissipative solitons. She has recently joined INRS-EMT (March 2018) as a Postdoctoral researcher in the Nonlinear Photonics group of Prof. Roberto Morandotti.
