Research activity

My research activity is focused on the search for rare events such as neutrinoless double beta decay (0vbb) with the CUORE experiment. 0vbb is a rare nuclear transition that occurs if neutrinos are massive Majorana particles and explicitly violates lepton number symmetry of the standard model of particle physics. CUORE (Cryogenic Underground Observatory for Rare Events) is a bolometric experiment
located at LNGS whose primary goal is the search for 0vbb of 130Te. My major contribution to CUORE activities is within data analysis at every level. I was involved in the validation of our new calibration system and helped finalizing data selection for the last data release. I took part in the development of a new software to perform a high sensitivity search for 130Te 0vbb decay. With this tool, we set a new limit on the half-life of 0vbb of 130Te.
