Giorgio Chiarelli    (click here for my homepage in Fermilab)

I am a  Research Director  at Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare. Most of my research activities are on High Energy Physics. For many years they focused on the Collider Detector at Fermilab (CDF experiment). Now I participate in the ATLAS experiment at CERN. I also studied high energy cosmic rays and gamma rays from (extra)galatic objects.  I have been the leader of the CDF-Pisa group, strong of more than 20 physicists working at the frontier of discovery!  Between 2011 and 2018 I was the National Coordinator of the INFN Group on Evaluation. I was the coordinator of the Committee of Experts appointed by the Italian ANVUR to evaluate Third Mission on Universities and Research Performing Organizations in Italy during VQR 2010-2014.
Since 2017 I am co-spokesperson (with Dave Toback) of the CDF experiment.
Currently I am involved in initiatives aimed to the dissemination of science in Italy and in Europe, and leader of the INFN CC3M (Commission for Coordination of Third Mission Activities), created in 2016 to improve our impact with and for society.

Descrizione: Descrizione: C:\Users\giorgio.WIN-PI-INFN\Documents\personal\index_files\redball.gif Other activities

Organizer (with G. Bellettini, M.Greco and G. Isidori) of the Rencontres de Physique de La Vall?e d'Aoste, yearly held in LaThuile where about 120 physicists involved in theoretical and experimental HEP physics join and discuss the hot topics in the field. We also have a special session where themes of wider impact on the current society are debated. Over the years we ranged from high T superconductivity to the next generation of the internet, without disregarding improvement in genetics, tumor therapy, dissemintaion of science, new nuclear (fusion and fission) projects, mission to Mars, nuclear waste problem, renewables etc.
If you are a young physicist willing to participate we might help you, please contact us via e-mail.

In the past years my interests broadened, therefore I now also deal with problems and initiatives related to Outreach, and to dissemination to the public of scientific results, as well as to the societal impact of research.
