Giulia Zanderighi

Professor of Physics

I currently hold a post of Professor of Physics at the Rudolf Peierls Centre for Theoretical Physics, and I am a tutorial fellow at Wadham College. Following a Laurea degree at the Università degli Studi di Milano (Italy) and a PhD at the Università degli Studi di Pavia (Italy), I have held posts at the Institute for Particle Physics Phenomenology in Durham (UK), at Fermilab in Batavia (Illinois, US) and at CERN in Geneva (Switzerland). In 2012 I have been awarded the Friedrich Wilhelm Bessel-Forschungspreis. In 2013 I won a consolidator ERC grant. From January 2014 I started a staff position at CERN, and I am currently on a five year leave from Oxford.

A list of my publications can be found here.

My main field of interest is the phenomenology of elementary particles, in particular the LHC and collider phenomenology. I have been working on fixed order perturbative (NLO) QCD calculations for multi-particle processes, on all orders resummations of logarithmic enhanced contributions, on the physics of jets and event shapes, on unstable particles using an effective theory description, on heavy flavour production, on Higgs and electroweak physics.
