Contacts

Vincenzo is a full-time researcher in particle physics. He holds a MSc in Physics (nuclear and subnuclear physics) and a PhD in Physics (particle physics) from the University of L'Aquila.

Vincenzo is a particle physicist studing rare processes in underground laboratories, such as the Gran Sasso National Laboratory (LNGS). He works on the DAMA experiments at LNGS since 2010. In particular, he collaborates to study the Dark Matter of the Universe, the double beta decay in various isotopes and different types of rare nuclear processes.
