My research activity is in astroparticle physics, in particular using neutrinos and cosmic rays. I have published more than 180 papers, with over 8500 citations and h-index 51 (SPIRES).
Co-author of the book "Particles and Fundamental Interactions" and author of "Particle and Astrophysics: a multimessenger approach", both for Springer I teach Mechanics, Nuclear and Subnuclear Physics and Particle Astrophysics. Since 2014, I’m deputy-spokesman of the ANTARES experiment. I also participate in the activities for the realization of the KM3NeT experiment. Before 2000, 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 was member of the UniBo Academic Senate from 2008 to 2012. I am President of the Joint students-professors Commission of the School of Sciences, and I represent the Physics area in the Commission for the Evaluation of University Research.
