I am Assistant Professor at the Vrije Universiteit of Amsterdam, as well as Staff member at the Theory group of Nikhef. I did my undergraduate studies at the Universitat de Barcelona, followed by a Ph. D. thesis in 2006 under the supervision of Prof. Jose Ignacio Latorre and Prof. Stefano Forte. I was then postdoctoral researcher at LPTHE in Paris VI-VII, the University of Milano and INFN, and at the Theory Department of CERN. Between 2014 and 2016 I held a junior faculty position at Rudolf Peierls for Theoretical Physics at the Physics Department of the University of Oxford.

My research interests include Quantum Chromodynamics, Large Hadron Collider phenomenology, parton distributions functions, jet reconstruction and substructure and opportunities for Beyond the Standard Model searches from precision observables. Some background material about my research interests can be found here. Please find here a detailed Curriculum Vitae. An updated list of my publications can be obtained from the Inspire database as well as from Google Scholar.

I am the Principal Investigator of the European Research Council Starting Grant "PDF4BSM: Parton Distributions in the Higgs Boson Era", whose main goal is to provide next-generation sets of parton distributions functions for LHC phenomenology.
