Biography

Born in 1987 in Pisa, Italy, Dr. Giorgio Busoni obtained his Bachelor degree in Physics, in 2009, and his Master degree in Theoretical Physics, in 2011, at the University of Pisa, under the supervision of Prof. S. Shore and Prof. A. Strumia. After that, he studied at  the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA), in Trieste, Italy, where he got his Ph.D. in Theoretical Particle Physics in 2015, under the supervision of Dott. Andrea De Simone. During his Ph.D., he was a visitor at the University of Geneva and CERN.

Dr. Giorgio Busoni obtained his first PostDoc appointment at The University of Melbourne, between 2015 and 2018, under the supervision of Prof. N. F. Bell, and a second PostDoc position between 2018 and 2021 at the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg, Germany, under the supervision of Prof. M. Lindner.

Dr. Giorgio Busoni is currently holding a Research Fellow position at The Australian National University and is currently taking part to the ARC Centre of Excellence for Dark Matter Particle Physics
