  1. In the OBELIX experiment at CERN the proton-antiproton annihilation physics has been studied at rest in liquid hydrogen and in gaseous at NTP and at low pressure hydrogen and in deuterium.
  2. In the Hera-B experiment, the production characteristics of J/psi meson and heavy quark mesons have been studied in p-A interactions at 42 GeV energy in the center of mass system.
  3. In the LHC-b collaboration, studies of CP violation in weak interactions have been performed.
  4. Currently the main research activity is focused on supersimmetry theories (SUSY) and top quaks in the ATLAS experiment at CERN. Also for ATLAS, a luminosity monitor detector called LUCID has been designed, built and tested.
  5. Phenomenology: several results in the Obelix and Hera-B experiments have been analysed in phenomenological studies. Moreover for the LHC-B a global analysis of all data on the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa matrix has been produced.
  6. Research on thin pixel track detectors for experiments of the next generations of large accellerators. Study of CMOS Monolithic Active Pixel Sensor (MAPS) built with 130 nanometer STM technology. Realization of a readout and data acquisition system for beam test activities.
