Associate Dean of Science and Associate Professor of Physics Affiliation: NYU Abu Dhabi
Education: MA University of Torino, PhD University of Rome.
Research Areas: astrophysics, particle physics
Francesco Arneodo is an experimental physicist with a focus on the intersection between astrophysics and particle physics. He obtained his PhD from the University of Rome — La Sapienza and his Master's degree from the University of Torino, Italy.
He spent most of his career at the Gran Sasso Laboratory (Italy) starting with the EAS-TOP cosmic ray experiment. He also worked on neutrino physics with liquid argon detectors and more recently on the search for Dark Matter in the framework of the XENON program. He is part of the team that, in 2012, gave birth to the Gran Sasso Science Institute, a new graduate school in L'Aquila, Italy.
In 2011, being interested also in socio-economic aspects of science, he obtained an MBA degree from the University of Warwick (UK).
He joined NYUAD in fall 2013, teaching a laboratory course where he strives to share with students the pleasure of making physics alive.
In his spare time, he tries to pursue two great passions, climbing, and sailing.
