Appointment of Giorgio Busoni

Assistance Professorship at the Australian National University

Dr. Giorgio Busoni received an offer as a Research Fellow (Assistant Professor) from the Australian National University, which he accepted meanwhile, and is currently taking part to the ARC Centre of Excellence for Dark Matter Particle Physics.

Giorgio Busoni obtained his bachelor degree in physics in 2009 and his master degree in theoretical physics in 2011 at the University of Pisa under the supervision of S. Shore and A. Strumia. After that, he got admitted to the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA) in Trieste, Italy, where he got his Ph.D. in theoretical particle physics in 2015 under the supervision of Andrea De Simone. During his Ph.D., he was a visitor at the University of Geneva and CERN.

Between 2015 and 2018, Giorgio Busoni worked as a PostDoc at the University of Melbourne with N. F. Bell, before he joined Manfred Lindner’s division at the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear Physics in autumn 2018.

Giorgio Busoni’s research topics as a theoretical physicist are questions related to the nature of dark matter, collider physics and astroparticle physics. At the moment, he is working in the fields of capture and thermalization of dark matter in stars, neutron stars and white dwarfs. He is also active in direct detection of dark matter and will collaborate with the SABRE experiment as a part of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Dark Matter Particle Physics activities.
