I am a physicist working at the ATLAS experiment
mainly on e/gamma perfomance and photon physics

I currently work in the ATLAS Collaboration since January 1st, 2010. My activity is focused on the performance of the electromagnetic calorimeter and on the photon physics, both within the Standard Model analyses, the search for the Higgs Boson and beyond the SM searches.
You can find more infomation in my detailed CV.


I have been involved in many activies in the ATLAS collaboration. See my CV for details. Here the main ones.

MVA calibration, e/gamma calibration coordinator

Since the beginning of my PhD I have maintened the Monte Carlo energy calibration of electrons and photons. I have improved it using multi-variate techniques.

Since 2014 I am the coordinator of the calibration subgroup in the e/gamma group. After having released the first calibration for Run 2 the activies are focused on precision measurements.

inclusive photon, diphoton, H→γγ decay, photon-jet searches, γγ exotic searches

During my PhD I have worked in the inclusive photon and diphoton analysis. Then I focused on the H→γγ. At the beginning of Run2 I have moved to the photon-jet analysis and to the search of New Physics in the γγ channel. Presently I am contact analysis for the Higgs coupling measurement in the diphoton channel.

I have particular interest in software. I have developed a web monitor for the space token usage in my institute. I have tested proof performance on a local cluster. I am a little constributor of the rootpy project. I am the maintainer of several tools used by the collaboration. I developed a tool to easily manage a full list of publication from Inspire HEP and a tool to semi-automatize the loading of publication informations on AIR.

prof. Destri teaching quantum mechanics


I have been assistant of prof. Fernando Palombo during the course "Laboratory of Numerical Treatment of Experimental Data" and of prof. Leonardo Carminati during the course "Laboratory of Numerical Treatment of Experimental Data" and of prof. Attilio Andreazza during the course "Istituzioni di Fisica Nucleare e Subnucleare". I have made a series of lectures about statistics for PhD students.
I’ve been the supervisor of a CERN summer student working in the MVA energy calibration. I have been the supervisor of the master thesis of Marco Rimoldi.
