Ambiti di Ricerca

My research interests are in the areas of "New Physics beyond the Standard Model of Particle Physics" and "Theoretical astro-particle physics and cosmology".


My present activity is focused on:

1) dark matter and dark radiation from evaporating primordial black holes;

2) primordial inflation and the Higgs field;

3) stability and metastability of the Higgs potential in the Standard Model.


In the past I worked on the following issues:

1) phenomenological aspects of the Flavor and CP problems: fermion masses and mixings (origin, flavour and CP violations, neutrino phenomenology, ...), rare decays, fermion electric and magnetic dipole moments, ...

2) model building beyond the Standard Model and related phenomenology in various frameworks: Grand Unification, Supersymmetry, Technicolor, ...

3) leptogenesis and matter-antimatter asymmetry of the Universe, cosmic microwave background anisotropies, cosmic rays, dark matter, ...
