In the middle of February, Claudio Pica started as the new assistant professor in Lattice Gauge Theory at CP3-Origins.
Claudio’s research interests revolve around the study of Beyond Standard Model physics, QCD in extreme conditions and mechanisms for confinement using advanced numerical simulations running on the most advanced computational platforms in the world.
He graduated from the prestigious Scuola Normale di Pisa in Italy, has held research positions at the Brookhaven National Laboratory in US and then in the high energy group at Edinburgh in UK. Despite his young age Pica has been extremely productive with several top cited papers and he is a leading expert in lattice field theory for models of Dynamical Electroweak Symmetry breaking.
