My main research activity deals with the Dark matter search in the form of Weakly Interacting Massive Particles (WIMPs) in the DarkSide-20k detector viewing a low-radioactivity argon target located in the Gran Sasso National Laboratory. The DS-20k experiment is designed to extend the cross section vs. mass range in the search for dark matter well beyond any current or presently funded experiment [https://arxiv.org/pdf/1707.08145.pdf]. DS-20k experiment has been approved and it is in the construction phase. The innovative instrumentation, in which the Pisa group is involved, of DS-20k consists in Silicon Photomultipliers innovative special arrays operated at Liquid argon temperatures [https://doi.org/10.1140/epjc/s10052-020-08801-2]. The technologies developed for DS-20k are also expected to be very relevant in view of future core-collapse supernova neutrinos experiments [JCAP03(2021)043].
Other activities of mine are in Belle2 experiment and in EEE [Eur. Phys. J. C (2021) 81:464], a network of cosmic muon trackers installed in about 60 italian secondary schools.
