Alessandro Biondini obtained his bachelor degree in Physics at the University of Rome “La Sapienza” in 2015.
In January 2018, he achieved a Master Degree in Nuclear and Subnuclear Physics at the University of Rome “La Sapienza” with a thesis about low transverse momentum threshold trigger efficiencies and Scale-Factors using Drell-Yan production at the ATLAS experiment.
His PhD research will be focused on searching for dark photons decaying to muons or electrons in Higgs decays at the ATLAS experiment, analyzing the full 2015-2018 dataset. Alessandro will use advanced techniques in terms of machine learning to develop algorithms for identification of leptons. The LHC would provide the world’s best sensitivity at masses above 10 GeV.
