My research activity has been focusing on the experimental study of CP violation in weak

B and D meson decays and in R&D activities for new silicon vertex detectors. I am a member of the BaBar experiment situated at the SLAC National Laboratory in California. More recently I started  working in the LHCb experiment, one of the experiments running at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN.  I am the principal investigator of the INFN Milano group since 2012 for the LHCb and BaBar experiments.
