Valentina Missaglia obtained her B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Physics from the University of Naples "Federico II" (Italy), completing her studies in 2018 with a Master thesis entitled "WATCAT: a tale of wide-angle tailed radio galaxies" under the supervision of Prof. M. Paolillo. Then, she spent one year at the Center for Astrophysics | Harvard & Smithsonian (Cambridge, MA, USA) as a visiting student, working under the supervision of Dr. R. P. Kraft on Chandra X-ray observations of galaxy clusters. She obtained her Ph.D. in Physics and Astronomy from the University of Turin (Italy) in December 2022 under the supervision of Prof. F. Massaro, with a thesis entitled "A Panchromatic View of Radio-Loud AGN and Their Environment".
Since February 2023, she has been a postdoctoral researcher under the supervision of Dr. C. Casadio in the SMILE group.
