Christian Corda received his Ph.D. degree in physics from the Pisa University, Pisa, Italy in 2008. He is the Editor-in-Chief of The Open Astronomy Journal and of Journal of High Energy Physics, Gravitation and Cosmology. He is also Editorial Board Member of other six international peer-reviewed journals. In addition, Dr. Corda is habilitated as Full Professor of Theoretical Physics in the USA and Associated Professor of Theoretical Physics and Astrophysics at the Italian Department for University, Research and Education (MIUR).
Dr. Corda`s Essay "Interferometric detection of gravitational waves: the definitive test for General Relativity" was an an Honorable Mention Winner at the 2009 Gravity Research Foundation Awards.
In his paper "Effective temperature for black holes", published in JHEP08(2011)101, Dr. Corda found an interesting result in the framework of quantum physics of black holes, by introducing a black hole`s effective temperature which takes into account the fact that, as shown by Parikh and Wilczek, the radiation spectrum cannot be strictly thermal. The analysis permits to find, for the first time in the literature, a direct connection between the Bekenstein-Hawking entropy, his sub-leading corrections and a quantum number. From this research paper Dr. Corda realized an Essay which received a second honorable mention in the 2012 Essay Competition of the Gravity Research Foundation.
In October 2013 Dr. Corda has been awarded with a Certificate of Honor by the Nagpur University in recognition and grateful appreciation for his research contributions in the fields of black holes and gravitational waves.
In September 2014, at the 12th International Conference of Numerical Analysis and Applied Mathematics, Dr. Corda has been awarded by the European Society of Computational Methods in Sciences, Engineering and Technology with its Highest Distinction of Honorary Fellowship for his outstanding results in Applied Mathematics.
In 2015, through a correct physical interpretation of Mössbauer experiment in a rotating system, Dr. Corda found a new proof of Einstein`s General Theory of Relativity published in Ann. Phys. Ann. Phys. 355, 360 (2015).
He is author and/or co.author of more that 100 scientific papers published in international peer reviewed specialist journals in the fields of mathematics, theoretical physics, astrophysics and cosmology.
