Who I am: I am a student from the University of Bari "Aldo Moro" and I am attending a Master degree in "Nuclear, Subnuclear and Astroparticle physics". I am really fascinated by elementary particle physics and by the physics of fundamental interactions; in general what strikes me is the possibility in describing everything around us with physics. My other interests are soccer, hiking, climbing and latin and greek literature.
Research: If Dark Matter interacts with Standard Model particles, it does through a mediator, Z'. At collider we have the unique possibility to study this mediator. My work consisted in the study of a particular process of Dark Matter production, called MonoZ', that add sensitivity to the MonoJet search. I generated this model and I set up the analysis strategy.
