I was born in Milano where I completed my studies at the local Universita' degli Studi with a degree in Physics,
defending a thesis on Hadronic Interactions at the Experiment 80 at the Serpukhov accelerator in Russia, obtaining
highest score and Laude.
After graduation, I joned the Milano group at that time engaged in the NA1 experiment at
were I contributed to the development of the Silicon Active target, a pioneering solid state detector, father of the
modern microstrip and pixel detectors, now in worldwide use in experimental particle physics.
In 1982 I began an exciting adventure at Fermilab
contributing to the design and construction of the
E867 photoproduction experiment
Since 2004 I'm a member of the
where I've been responsible for the Forward Pixel Detector
commissioning test-stand software. Recently I've been responsible for the database interface software of the
whole Pixel Detector.
