Full Professor

Department of Physics and Astronomy "Augusto Righi"

Academic discipline: FIS/01 Experimental Physics

Short Bio

My research activity is in astroparticle physics, in particular using neutrinos and cosmic rays (see youtube). I have published more than 220 papersSince 2014, I’m deputy-spokesman of the ANTARES experiment. I also participate in the activities for the realization of the KM3NeT experiment. Previously, I collaborated on the MACRO experiment at the Gran Sasso Labs, and I contributed significantly to the evidence of atmospheric neutrino oscillations. Between 1986 and 1992, I developed a nuclear track detector (CR39), used for physics application. Currently this nuclear track detector is used for the searches of magnetic monopoles at LHC (MOeDAL experiment). I'm co-author of the book  "Particles and Fundamental Interactions" and author of "Probes of Multimessenger Astrophysics", both for Springer. I teach Mechanics, Nuclear and Subnuclear Physics and Particle Astrophysics. 

I was member of the UniBo Academic Senate (2008-2012), president of the Joint students-professors Commission of the School of Sciences (2012-2018).
