Lucia Di Ciaccio is full Professor in Physics at the University of Savoie Mont Blanc (USMB). Her research field is High Energy Physics. She is member of the ATLAS Collaboration, which studies the proton-proton interactions at the Large Hadron Collider of CERN. Her present research activity deals with the search of signs of new physics phenomena in the multiple gauge boson sector.
After her thesis in the NA19 (beauty search) prepared at CERN and defended at the Rome University, she worked as post-doc in the NADIR experiment (neutron oscillations) at the Pavia nuclear reactor as member of the Rome group and in the TAUP experiment (proton decay) in the Frejus tunnel as member of the Saclay group. From 1985-1999, as University researcher in Rome, she worked in the DELPHI experiment at the CERN LEP Collider, then moved to USMB as professor and joined the ATLAS Collaboration as member of the Laboratoire de Physique des Particules d’Annecy (LAPP) group, contributing to the construction and commissioning of the ATLAS liquid argon calorimeter.
In ATLAS she served as convener of the Standard Model Physics Group, member of the Speaker Committee Advisory Board and more recently as ATLAS Publication Committee Deputy and Chair.
