My research interests are in the sector of High Energy Physics, in particular in the field of flavor physics and CP violation. My works aim at providing stringent tests of the Standard Model of particle physics, searching for possible new effects that might hint at the existence of new classes of unknown fundamental particles and interactions. I am mostly active in the study of decays of composite particles containing charm and beauty quarks, within the LHCb collaboration at CERN. As a distinctive feature of Carbone's research output, he is the leading author of several LHCb measurements, observing CP violation in beauty and charm decays.

From 2013 to 2015, Carbone A. coordinated the “Charmless B Decays” physics working group of the LHCb experiment, composed of about 80 physicists from several international research institutes. From 2012 to 2015, Carbone A. was a member of the Heavy Flavour Averaging Group, with the responsibility for providing the scientific community with regular updates on world averages in the field of flavor physics. Carbone A. is also involved in activities related to technological developments and the use of advanced computing tools for the analysis of large data volumes (Big Data).

Carbone A. supervised several bachelor, master and Ph.D. students.

Carbone A. is the author of about 490 papers published in leading peer-reviewed journals.
