Caterina Doglioni


Personal profile


I am a professor of particle physics at the University of Manchester, with a shared appointment as a senior lecturer at Lund University (Sweden). I completed my PhD on the physics of strong interactions on the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider in 2011 in Oxford, and developed an interest in physics beyond what we know, especially the physics of Dark Matter, starting with a postdoctoral research position at the University of Geneva and subsequently at Lund University and here in Manchester. Throughout my career, I have been driven by finding out more about the constituents of matter as well as by the challenges related to the “big science” needed to study them. The Large Hadron Collider is the perfect scientific environment to combine the two: together with the group of Master's and PhD students and postdoctoral researchers funded by the European Research Council and with my international colleagues, I work on the challenges that a data-rich research environment presents for discoveries of rare processes and the quest for dark matter with the ATLAS detector and future particle colliders.
