I was born in Cagliari, where I attended schools and where I obtained the Bachelor’s degree in Physics from the University of Cagliari. In 2015 I moved in Pisa where I obtained the Master's degree in Physics. My studies have concerned Fundamental Interactions, focussing in particular on Particle Physics.
For my Master Thesis I concentrated on the Dark Sector searches at electron-positron colliders, studying the production of a light dark gauge boson Z' in association with a muon pair in electron-positron annihilation at the center of mass energy of 10.58 GeV in the Belle II experiment. I perfomed the full MC simulation, I studied a possible selection of signal events and its optimization for the rejection of the background and I performed a very preliminary comparison between MC and the first data taken by the Belle II experiment (April-July 2018). Through my analysis it was possible to estimate the limits to a specific Dark Sector model, which introduces the Z' boson extending the symmetry group of the SM, obtainable in the Belle II experiment.
During my thesis I worked with the Pisa Silicon Vertex Detector (SVD) group of the Belle II collaboration and I was involved in the development of the calibration method of the algorithm used by the SVD to estimate the hit time of particles that cross each sensor. The calibration is important since precise timing information are used to reject background events, which are off-time with respect the event time.
At present, I am a member of the SVD group of Belle II and I am still working on the Dark Sector analysis and on the validation of the developed calibration method.
