A few words about me

I was born in 1988 in a quite small village lost in that part of northern Italy that goes under the name of Brianza, between the cities of Milan, Lecco and Bergamo.

I studied particle physics at the University of Milano-Bicocca, where I obtained both my Bachelor (Laurea Triennale) and Master (Laurea Magistrale) degrees. There, I started to collaborate with the local research group working on the CMS experiment, one of the large particle physics detectors currently operating at the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC), in Geneva (Switzerland).

After finishing my studies, I moved to Germany and from February 2013 until 2016 I worked on my Ph.D. project as a KSETA Doctoral fellow at the Institute of Experimental Nuclear Physics (IEKP) of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology.
The activities related to the CMS experiment remained my primary research interest. In particular, I worked on topics such as the upgrade of the CMS inner pixel detector, the experimental reconstruction and identification of tau lepton decays and the analysis of the first 13 TeV data collected by the experiment during the year 2015.
In July 2016 I successfully defended my Ph.D. thesis at the Institute of Experimental Nuclear Physics.

You can find more informations about CMS and the inner pixel detector in the research section of this webpage.


My KSETA personal webpage contains a list of my main publications and some of the scientific talks that I gave during the last few years.
