Research interests

I am Professor at the University of Zurich and group leader of the flavour physics experimental group at UZH, working on LHCb and SHiP. 

I received my PhD from the University of Cagliari with a thesis on rare decays of B-mesons at LHCb. From 2009 to 2013 I was postdoc at NIKHEF (The Netherlands) and at the University of Zurich, mostly based at CERN in Geneva.  I have been awarded an SNS Professorship in July 2013 and an SNF Starting Grant in March 2015. 

My research interests are mainly studies of rare decays of B-mesons, lepton flavour violating decays of B-mesons and tau leptons and search for very weakly interacting particles, in particular searches for sterile neutrinos.
