I am an experimental particle physicist interested in dark matter searches and in precision tests of the discrete symmetries C, P and T.
The Standard Model of the electroweak and strong interactions describes accurately all the results collected so far by earth based experiments but it fails to explain some key astrophysical observations leaving many important questions open.
What are the properties of the dark matter that held together the galaxies?
Why matter prevailed on anti-matter right after the big bang?
My activities attempt to help in solving these puzzles:
– the design of the sensors of the Darkside 20k experiment, a dual phase liquid-gas Argon time projection chamber able to detect the interaction of Weak Interacting Particles with ordinary matter.
– the analysis of the data from the Belle II detector which is recording the electron positron collisions at the SuperKEKB collider, a second generation flavor factory holding the world luminosity record.
- Simulation of an all-layer monolithic pixel vertex detector for the Belle II upgrade 
- Combined analysis of Belle and Belle II data to determine the CKM angle φ3 using B⁺ → D( K⁰s h⁺h⁻ )h⁺ decays 
- Measurement of the cluster position resolution of the Belle II Silicon Vertex Detector 
- Search for an Axionlike Particle in B Meson Decays 
- Search for Darkonium in e+e- Collisions
