Hello everyone! My name is Stefano and I am an enthusiastic Electronic Engineer working at CERN on the Large Hadron Collider with a PhD in Applied Physics. My study focused on development of novel silicon sensors for detecting ionizing particles.
I joined CERN as a student back in 2007. Twelve years later I am still here as a STAFF member and in charge of the optical fiber infrastructure established throughout the CERN campus.
Since I was a child, Physics and Science have been my passions. They are my favorite because they enable us see the links between seemingly disparate phenomena. They provide us with powerful tools for expressing our creativity, seeing the world in new ways, and eventually changing it.
Check out my blog for interesting posts on Science, Technology and of course CERN.
I like to create new lines of communication and share my experience at CERN using social media like Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube.
CERN's science generates new knowledge for the benefit of all people and I strongly believe that social media are the best way to get more people interested in learning science.
I am very interested in education, sports, food, and science. I've been playing soccer since I was child and I believe myself to be one of the CERN's finest football talent :).
I earned my Engineering degree after finishing the Electronic Specialitation at the University of Perugia.
Following graduation, I joined the INFN at the University of Perugia, where I completed my PhD. Alongside my studies, I worked as a Research Assistant at INFN and on the developed of new silicon pixel sensors.
I am currently working at CERN in the Electrical group part of the Engineering department. I am an expert in fibre optics and the project coordinator at CERN.
