Cosimo Bambi received a Ph.D. degree in 2007 from Ferrara University, Ferrara, Italy, and the Laurea degree in 2003 from Florence University, Florence, Italy. Currently, he is a Young Professor of physics in the Department of Physics, Fudan University, Yangpu, Shanghai, China. His research interests include relativistic astrophysics, tests of general relativity, and black holes. He has various publications, among them are the following: C. Bambi, "A code to compute the emission of thin accretion disks in non-Kerr space-times and test the nature of black hole candidates," Astrophysical Journal 761 (2012) 174, C. Bambi, "Attempt to find a correlation between the spin of stellar-mass black hole candidates and the power of steady jets: relaxing the Kerr black hole hypothesis," Physical Review D 86 (2012) 123013, C. Bambi, "Can we constrain the maximum value for the spin parameter of the super-massive objects in galactic nuclei without knowing their actual nature?" Physics Letter B 705 (2011) 5, C. Bambi, "Constraint on the quadrupole moment of super-massive black hole candidates from the estimate of the mean radiative efficiency of AGN," Physical Review D 83 (2011) 103003, and C. Bambi & K.
