I was involved in the search of the $\nu_{\mu}$ to $\nu_{e}$ oscillation research with the OPERA detector within the group of the Bern University. In particular I developed the analysis and defined an extended scanning protocol dedicated to the identification of electromagnetic showers, thus to increase the efficiency to $\nu_{e}$ charged current interactions.

CUORE and Cuoricino

Cuoricino was a detector made by an array of 62 TeO2 bolometers operating at 10 mK. The mechanical vibrations of the cryogenic system significantly affected the noise; the structure vibrates and the noise induced is correlated between different channels. In order to optimise the energy resolution I developed an algorithm to remove the correlated noise. It is based on an analysis of the multichannel covariance matrix in the frequency domain and efficiently removes the correlated noise, such algorithm is still in use for the data analysis of CUORE. To develop such algorithm I also implemented all the libraries for complex mathematics in Diana, the CUORE analysis framework.
