Luca is a PhD student in Louvain since September 2017. His thesis work will focus on new physics searches at the LHC in the context of simplified models and EFT. In particular, he will consider the EFT interpretation of the LHC data, improving it by computing higher order corrections in QCD/EW and in the EFT expansion, by study possible UV completions (full or simplified) and how to relate them to the EFT, devising new observables and strategies to constrain the Wilson coefficients, to explore new techniques to more reliably evaluate the uncertainties and to perform global fits using not only LHC data but also EW precision observables and future experiments.
