Laura Reina joins the CP3 Board

December 8, 2014

Portrait of Laura ReinaWe are overjoyed to announce that Laura Reina has joined the CP3 Board.

Laura Reina received her Ph.D. degree in high-energy theoretical physics from The International School for Advanced Studies (Trieste, Italy) in 1992. After postdoctoral work at the University of Brussels (Belgium) and at Brookhaven National Laboratory, she joined the University of Wisconsin in Madison as assistant scientist in 1997 and the FSU faculty in 1998, where she was appointed full professor in 2007. In 2005 she was elected Fellow of the American Physical Society. Reina’s research is mainly oriented to the phenomenology of elementary particle physics, with particular attention to the effects of perturbative QCD corrections in collider physics. Recently she has conducted some important studies of the production of Higgs bosons and weak vector bosons in association with heavy quarks at hadron colliders and she has been focusing on the application and development of analytical and numerical algorithms for the systematic implementation of higher order pertubative field theory calculations. Her expertise also includes the physics of heavy flavors, CP-violation, and new models beyond the Standard Model.

Laura: I’m honored to have been asked to join such a prestigious group of colleagues and I hope to be able to contribute my experience and expertise in collider physics to the exciting scientific program of CP3-Origin, at the time when Run 2 of the LHC is about to start.

We look very much forward to Laura’s advices and future fruitful collaboration.

Laura is replacing our outstanding colleague Torbjörn Sjöstrand who is stepping down from the board according to the scheduled periodic renewal of the board.
