Degree: Pisa (2020)
Research: Particle Physics
Thesis: Measurement of the muon anomalous precession frequency with the Run-2/3 data in the Muon experiment at Fermilab
Supervisor: Graziano Venanzoni


I was born in Pisa in December 1996. In 2015 I obtained my High School Diploma with an International Scientific curriculum. I studied Physics at the University of Pisa, where I obtained both my BSc degree (2018)  and MSc (2020) degree with 110/110 cum laude. In July 2019, I took part in the Summer Student Program at  DESY (Hamburg) where I joined the FLC group and performed tests on a six-layer beam telescope. In February  2020 I joined the “Muon g-2, E989” experiment at Fermilab to work on my Master Thesis, supervised by Dr.  Graziano Venanzoni. My work consisted in the study of systematic uncertainties on the measurement of the  muon anomalous magnetic moment, focusing on events collected during the first acquisition run in 2018.  For my PhD project, I plan to continue my activity of data analysis and quality cuts in the Muon g-2 experiment. Besides Physics, I enjoy reading books and taking drama classes. Having a double citizenship  (Italian and Australian) I have also had many opportunities to travel abroad, and I am especially fascinated by Japanese culture and landscapes.
