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 and the search for the Higgs Boson.
I have published more than 400 papers with the ATLAS collaboration.
You can find more infomation in my detailed CV.


I have been involved in many activities in the ATLAS collaboration. See my CV for details.

e/gamma calibration coordinator

2014 - present

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.

Higgs diphoton decay event display

H→γγ decay

2011 - present

I am working for the H→γγ group. 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.

MC Calibration

2010-present 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.

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 was 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 and Silvia Comotti. Statistical lectures for the PhD course are available here.
