    I have attended courses and talks during the PhD years about quantum mechanics, particle detectors, data analysis techniques and general relativity. During the PostDoc most of the courses and talk were focused on computer science and information technology.

    Scientific activities

    Until September 2013 I had a post doc position at INFN CNAF in Bologna for the new experiment "SuperB": I was involved in the computing activities for the experiment and services that are developed in the Center. Since the experiment was not funded anymore I was also involved in the computing of other astro-particle experiments (AMS, Borexino, Auger, CTA, Icarus, Glast, Gerda, LHCf, Magic, Pamela, Virgo and Xenon).

    Since September 2009 I had a post doc position at INFN CNAF for the computing activities of the LHCb experiment. During this two years period I have been involved in computing shifts for the production at CERN (Geneva) and I have attended workshops and conferences at CNAF.
    My research activity during the PhD at University of Ferrara has been focused on the study of charged B meson decay in a charmless channel, using data from the BaBar experiment located at Stanford Linear Accelartor Center (USA), working together with a group of Universite Pierre et Marie Curie of Paris. I spent several periods of work and study at SLAC (September-October 2006, June 2007, December 2007) and in Paris at"Laboratoire de Physique Nucleaire et de Hautes Energies" (LPNHE) (November 2006, May 2007, September 2007, January 2008).
    During my time at BaBar association my service task was to support the Computing Center of Padova. The activity of the Center was devoted to the processing of the data collected daily at BaBar.
    After the update of the IFR subdetector during 2004 and 2006 (replacing the old RPC detector with new LST chambers built in Ferrara), I took care of the validation for the experiment simulation for the new detector and the software optimization for the muon selection.
    Before my graduation, during 2003 and 2004, I started working for the BaBar experiment for 2 months at SLAC. In this period I performed hardware and software studies on the IFR detector for the quality control and I worked on the installation and setup.


    As member of the BaBar, LHCb and SuperB collaborations I have signed 242 papers and 51 conference papers; 197 were published on international journals like Physical Review Letters, Physical Review D, Physics Letter B and Journal of Instrumentation.
