Curriculum vitae

I got a Laurea degree in Physics - cum laude - at the University of Bologna in 1995. After the Military Service in the Italian Air Force, I got a PhD in Physics in 2000 defending the thesis “A new approach to the study of high energy muon bundles with the MACRO experiment at Gran Sasso”. I've been Research Associate up to 2003 at the Physics Department of Bologna, then Assistant Professor up to 2011 and Associate Professor up to 2021. Now I’m Full Professor of Experimental Physics at the Alma Mater.

My scientific activity is carried out in High Energy Physics, as a research associate of INFN. I started my activity in cosmic ray and astroparticle physics within the MACRO Experiment at Gran Sasso. Then I focused on neutrino physics, atmospheric neutrinos at first and then with artificial beams in the OPERA collaboration. Presently I'm involved in collider physics as a member of the ATLAS Collaboration at CERN's LHC, where I’m Team Leader of the Bologna group.

I coauthored about 600 papers in international journals and dozens of conference proceedings, and my h-index is 76. I presented my scientific results at about 30 international conferences, often as invited talks. I was regular referee for international reviews.

I started my teaching activity by lecturing seminars for PhD in Physics, and by teaching basic physics courses for Laurea courses in Mathematics and Civil Engineering. Presently I teach Thermodynamics at students of Laurea degree in Physics, Statistical Data Analysis at the students of 2nd level Laurea degree in Physics and Flavour Physics at the international master IMAPP, of which I have been a proponent. I took part in the reforming processes of 1st and 2nd level graduate programs.

I'm member of the Alma Mater Research Evaluation panel, of the PhD in Physics panel and of the Collegio Superiore, an excellence academic institution of the Bologna University. I also serve in research and teaching panels of my department. I participated in various projects, and I'm responsible of Erasmus exchange program with Germany. I'm in the organizing committee of the ISHEP international school in France.

I'm deeply involved in the dissemination of scientific knowledge, for primary, middle, and high schools.
