Gianmarco Bruno

Research Associate Affiliation: NYU Abu Dhabi
Education: PhD University of L'Aquila, Italy

Research Areas: Astroparticle physics, Environmental background, Radiation detection, Novel detector technologies

Gianmarco has worked for several years in the "INFN - Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso" (Italy), which is nowadays the largest facility in the world for underground astroparticle physics. Gianmarco has been involved in various underground experiments studying rare processes, such as neutrino form gravitational core-collapse and dark matter. He is proudly member of the The XENON1T experiment, which is the most sensitive direct detection experiment for dark matter in the form of weakly interacting particles (WIMPs) with masses above 6 GeV/c^2 scattering off nuclei. His research currently focuses on both simulation of detectors for gamma spectroscopy and monitoring and controlling of a cryogenic facility based on a liquid nitrogen cooling system.
