Every few days, starting today, we will introduce one of our speakers on this website and on our Facebook page. It is an honour to announce our first speaker:
Dr. Alessandro Grelli
At present, Alessandro is assistant professor at the Utrecht University
in the institute of sub-atomic physics (SAP). He is teaching advanced mechanics at the 3rd year bachelors and he is responsible of the SAP part of the 2nd year bachelor experimental stage. In addition, Alessandro is involved in several
outreach projects with high school students. Among them he is coordinator, for the Utrecht province, of the HiSPARC project.
From the scientific side, in the past few years, he was awarded of the NWO VENI and VIDI grants for his studies on the Quark-Gluon-Plasma physics using heavy-flavour quarks as a probe. His main expertise is in data analysis with particular emphasis on D mesons production. In the period 2014-17 Alessandro served as coordinator of the D mesons and charmed baryons analysis group within the ALICE Collaboration and, since October 2017, he is serving as convener of the heavy-flavour physics group of the same experimental collaboration.
