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.
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.
