    Professional experience

    Contract of Association at CERN (Switzerland), 2012

    Collaboration with INFN and CMS experiment at CERN, 2010 to 2012

    INFN fellowship for young post-graduates, September to December 2009

    Stage with research project at FERMILAB (USA), July to September 2008

    Main objectives achieved and gained experiences:

    - mainstream of the doctoral research project: identi cation of signals from a new elementary particle (i.e. supersymmetric Higgs boson), predicted by a promising physics theory, out of huge backgrounds from spurious events. Pursued through the analysis of big amount of data recorded by the CMS experiment, performed with models built for the prediction of the data behavior (using Monte Carlo simulation and data-driven methods) and applying statistics techniques. A dedicated C++ software was used for the purpose. The work involved the collaboration of two research groups (16 people) and led to an original result published in a top-rated journal (Physics Letters B, Volume 722, Issues 45, 24 May 2013, Pages 207-232 );

    - collaboration and communication with people having di erent experience, through the discussion of results and methods within research groups, presentation of results at national and international conferences and events for the outreach of students. The realization of clear and exhaustive presentations, reports, scienti c articles and thesis was a mandatory and essential aspect for the accomplishment of the overall research projects;

    - task responsibilities: development and maintenance of the software (C++ and Python based) dedicated to test the quality of data (i.e. Data Quality Monitoring, DQM) recorded by a subsystem of the CMS experiment. Primary goal was to propose, discuss with experts and implement new strategies for the monitoring of data, in order to avoid data losses due to hardware failures or software ineciencies during acquisition. Furthermore, the responsibility involved the management of the data certi cation, for the selection of data with good quality to be used for all the physics analyses. This activity led to a relevant improvement of the DQM;

    - developed a strategy to test the performances of part of the CMS experiment. This was helpful to spot possible hardware and software problems and to improve the system calibration, alignment and raw data reconstruction algorithms. A tool was developed in C++ and Python computer language. The results have been published in a top-rated journal (Journal of Instrumentation 8 (2013) P11002 );

    - frequent shifts as detector expert during data taking of the CMS experiment. Main responsibility: supervise and guarantee a good status of the detector during data taking in order to avoid possible data losses due to electronic or software malfunctioning;

    Awards

    CMS 2012 Achievement Award for important contributions to the Data Quality Monitoring software system and data quality certi cation tools;

    Language skills

    Italian: mother tongue

    English: fluent, written and spoken
