Luca is a member of the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics High Energy Physics research group, and the Physics Beyond the Standard Proton team ( Currently, his research is focused on the possibility to uncover New Physics indirectly at colliders within the SMEFT framework. He also has an interest in Dark Matter searches, with stress on indirect detection and collider production.
