Further particulars on my research can be found here
I am mainly active on the following projects:
I am centrally involved in preparations for the physics exploitation of the
Fermilab Short-Baseline Neutrino (SBN) Programme
in particular in the
SBN Near Detector (SBND)
I serve as
a member of the SBND Executive Committee (2020-present),
SBND Physics co-Coordinator (2017-present), and as
Systematics & Oscillation Sensitivity WG co-Coordinator (2018-present) for the overall SBN programme.
I lead the development of a
simultaneous sterile neutrino oscillation and systematics
for SBN, as well as preparations for
SBND neutrino cross-section measurements
of unprecedented precision.
I am a member of the T2K experiment
where, over the past decade, I performed flagship oscillation measurements
I am founder and coordinator of the
VALOR fitting group
which, from 2010 to present, has produced over 20 reviewed oscillation physics analyses
and it has contributed to 12 published T2K papers, an effort culminating in the
2020 Nature paper
on T2K neutrino CP violation
Details on the prolific T2K output of the VALOR group
can be found in here
I am co-spokesperson of the international GENIE collaboration,
and one of the main authors of the well-known
neutrino event generator
, as well as of the corresponding
global analysis of neutrino scattering data
informing GENIE tunes.
GENIE performs influential phemomenology research in the boundary between nuclear
and particle physics
, provides a bridge between theory and measurement
and it is a key ingredient in the exploitation effort of many experiments.
I am one of the founders, main authors and coordinator of the
VALOR fitting group
The group plays a central role both in the physics exploitation and design optimisation several experiments,
both by maintaining and developing the VALOR Software Development Kit (SDK),
and by implementing and performing numerous data analyses and sensitivity studies on top of that SDK.
My group collaborates with GMV Innovating Solutions
a large technology company headquartered in Spain, on an ESA-funded study, to
perform a preliminary exploration of the innovative and disrupting technological concept of
Positioning, Navigation and Timing (PNT) applications based on neutrinos
My group collaborates with WITSIDE
a Data Analytics Agency, in a project to develop Deep Learning applications
for the diagnosis and prognosis of a number of cancer types.
