Hi everyone! I am Stefano and I am an enthusiastic Electronic Engineer working at CERN on the Large Hadron Collider with a PhD in Applied Physics. My doctoral research focused on development of innovative silicon sensors for the detection of ionizing particles.
I joined CERN as student back in 2007 . After 11 years I am still here, STAFF and responsible of the optical fibre infrustructure installed all over CERN.
Physics and science have been my passion since I was a kid. I love them because they help us to see the connections between seemly disparate phenomena. They give us powerful tools to help us to express our creativity, to see the world in new ways and then to change it.
I like to create new lines of communication and share my experience at CERN using social media like Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube.
The science done at CERN generates new knowledge for the benefit of all people and I strongly believe that social media are the right means to get more people excited about learning science.
I am passionate about education, sport, food, and science. I've been playing soccer since I was kid and I consider myself one of the best football talent at CERN.
I earned my Honours Master of Engineering degree by completing the Electronic Specialitation 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.
