Professor of Physics
Ph.D., University of Turin, Italy, 1996
Atlas Group at CERN
The goal of Professor Gabriella Sciolla's research in experimental particle physics is to uncover physics beyond the Standard Model through many complementary approaches. As a member of the BABAR Collaboration at SLAC, she used B mesons produced in electron-positron interactions to look for effects of New Physics in CP violation and rare B meson decays. As a member of the DMTPC Collaboration, she searched for nuclear recoils induced by interactions of yet-to-be-discovered Dark Matter particles, which may, for example, be the Lightest Supersymmetric Particles. At the LHC, she studies high-energy p-p collisions to search for new particles and new physics.
