Professor of Physics
PhD, University of Turin, Italy, 1996
Professor Sciolla and her team work on the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. Research topics include the measurement of the properties of the Higgs Boson in ZZ and WW final states, precision measurements of Standard Model phenomena, and the search for new and exotic particles such as Dark Matter particles, Z’, and Gravitons. In addition, Sciolla’s team is very active in the design and construction of a silicon tracker (ITk) for the ATLAS upgrade as well as on Tracking and Muon Combined Performance.
