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.
I have published more than 300 articles with the ATLAS collaboration.
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. The activities are focused on the preparation of the energy calibration for Run 2 for electrons and photons.

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

During my PhD I have worked in the inclusive photon and diphoton analysis. Then I focused on the H→γγ. I have been an editor of the internal note in 2013 and in 2014. I have worked in all the parts of the analysis, from the cuflow, the systematics evaluation, the signal and background modeling, up to the final fit to measure the Higgs mass. At the beginning of Run2 I have moved to the photon-jet analysis.

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 have been assistant of prof. Fernando Palombo during the course "Laboratory of Numerical Treatment of Experimental Data" and of dott. Leonardo Carminati during the course "Laboratory of Numerical Treatment of Experimental Data". 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.
