The main topic which has been present in a large part of my scientific activity is the dynamical symmetry breaking phenomenon both in strong and electroweak interactions. I'm working on the formulation of Beyond Standard Model (BSM) scenarios deriving by a strong underlying dynamics and study their experimental manifestations at present and future particle accelerators. I'm also interested in addressing the cosmological implications of a strongly interacting completion of the SM.

My research activity is mainly focused on the study the Higgs, electroweak and flavor dynamics in the Standard Model and its extensions. My interests range from the theoretical analysis of new-physics theories, to more phenomenological subjects oriented to collider experiments and cosmology. At present I am also interested in artificial intelligence applications for high-energy particle physics.

I work at the interface between particles physics and cosmology. I am broadly interested in theoretical aspects of physics beyond the SM. Currently the main focus of my research is dark matter and strongly coupled extensions of the SM.

As a theorist, I am interested in exploring new ideas beyond the Standard Model and finding new ways of testing them at colliders and in cosmological and astrophysical observables. Recently I am interested in 21cm cosmology, gravitational waves signals and new searches for exotic physics at colliders.

I am interested in new physics beyond the Standard Model that can be investigated by means of theoretical and phenomenological approaches. Recently, I became interested in cosmology, since it can offer new ways to test fundamental physics, for example through the study of Dark Matter and cosmological transitions in the Early Universe.

I am a theoretical high energy and computational physicist specialising in lattice field theory, with focus on strongly coupled gauge theories. In the context of BSM physics my main current interests are the QCD axion, composite Higgs and dilaton physics, and models for Dark Matter based on strong dynamics.

My research interest includes physics beyond the Standard Model and conformal field theory (CFT). Especially I worked on composite model building and related phenomenology, and also a semiclassical approach to CFTs. Recently I have been working on dark matter model building with the hope of gaining more insight into this mysterious aspect of our universe.
