I am an enthusiastic Electronic Engineer working at CERN with a PhD in Applied Physics. My doctoral research focuses on development of innovative silicon sensors for the detection of ionizing particles.
The science done at CERN generates new knowledge for the benefit of all people. And it strongly depends on public support. I believe social media offers fantastic opportunities to get more people excited about learning science and giving it the support it needs. For this reason, I am very passionate about creating new lines of communication between the public and scientists using social media like Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube.
I am passionate about education, sport, food, and (of course) science. When I am not in the lab or online I love to read. I've been playing soccer since I was kid and I consider myself one of the best talent at CERN.
I have been experimenting and asking "why" and "how" my whole life. I earned my Honours Master of Engineering degree by completing the Electronic Specialist at University of Perugia.
Following my degree, I joined the INFN at the University of Perugia, where I defended my PhD. Alongside my studies I have been employed as a Research Assistant and worked on the developed of new silicon pixel sensor.
I currently work at CERN in the Electrical group part of the Engineering department. I am a specialist in optical fibre signal transmission and at the same time planning coordinator of the eletrical activities at CERN.
