Laura Cardani

Laura is a Dicke fellow since September 2014. Her main research interest is the search for rare events that could probe physics beyond the Standard Model, like neutrinoless double beta decay and dark matter interactions. She is developing background-free detectors based on the bolometric technique, with the goal of suppressing all the spurious events in the region of interest to the level of a few counts in several years of data taking. She is member of the CUORE collaboration, that is completing the construction of a tonne scale detector operated at 10 mK, as well as of the LUCIFER and CALDER collaborations, that are developing active background rejection tool for next generation projects.
