I currently hold a post of Professor of Physics at the Rudolf Peierls Centre for Theoretical Physics, and I am a tutorial fellow at Wadham College. Following a Laurea degree at the Università degli Studi di Milano (Italy) and a PhD at the Università degli Studi di Pavia (Italy), I have held posts at the Institute for Particle Physics Phenomenology in Durham (UK), at Fermilab in Batavia (Illinois, US) and at CERN in Geneva (Switzerland). In 2012 I have been awarded the Friedrich Wilhelm Bessel-Forschungspreis. In 2013 I won a consolidator ERC grant. From January 2014 I started a staff position at CERN, and I am currently on a five year leave from Oxford.
