Research activity
From 1989, I participate continuously in the research activity in the field of experimental physics of elementary particles. First as a member of the DELPHI collaboration and from 1998 until today as a member of the ATLAS collaboration.
Concerning hardware and detector development, I have participated in the calibration and debugging of DELPHI Barrel RICH (Ring Imaging CHerenkov) electronics and the check of the data taking quality and slow-controls of the DELPHI experiment. I have participated, having serious commitments, in the construction and partial testing of 30000 drift tubes for the barrel inner chambers (BIS) of the muon spectrometer in the ATLAS experiment, as well as in their integration with services and the quality control of their operation before installation. I have also worked on the operational verification of the PMT blocks of the ATLAS Tile calorimeter. From 2007 I participate in the R&D program which investigates the upgrate of ATLAS muon spectrometer in the sLHC environment.  

Concerning software and physics analysis, I have essentially contributed in developing the necessary tools and elaborate statistical techniques for the extraction of precise electroweak results in the LEPII environment. Within this involvement, the understanding and development of minimization and multivariate techniques, discriminant analysis and neural networks was mandatory.  I have main contribution in producing physics results in Electroweak physics (Measurement of the mass and trillinear gauge couplings of the W boson through W pair production,  qqbar cross section measurement at √s > MZ, in e+e- collisions at LEP), Heavy quark physics (Measurement of the exclusive and inclusive J/y production in Z hadronic decays and b life time ), Hadronization (Strange baryon production and correlations  in Z  hadronic decays) and Searches (Search for leptoquarks and heavy stable particles in e+e- collisions at LEP).

Within the ATLAS collaboration, I am concentrated in the following topics:

  • Muon energy loss measurement
  • Search for new gauge bosons W’-> μν and Z’->μ+μ-
  • Η->ΖΖ*->4l
  • MSSM h/A/H->μ+μ-
