Riccardo Barbieri

Professor Emeritus

I am interested in the Fundamental Interactions of Particle Physics and in the early Universe. My current interests focus on the flavour problem and in ultra-light scalars as DM particles.

Associated Scientific Staff

Dario Buttazzo

INFN Researcher

My research activity is focused on theoretical high-energy physics. In particular, I am interested in fundamental interactions beyond the Standard Model, the origin of fermion masses and mixings, and more in general quantum field theory and cosmology.​

Postdoc Fellows

Adrien Kuntz

My research interests forcus on modified gravity for cosmology and the relativistic version of the two and three-body problem, with applications towards gravitational waveform modelling or tests of gravity.
