Laura Reina

Laura Reina received her Ph.D. degree in high-energy theoretical physics from the International School for Advanced Studies (Trieste, Italy) in 1992. After postdoctoral work at the University of Brussels (Belgium) and at Brookhaven National Laboratory, she joined the University of Wisconsin in Madison as assistant scientist in 1997 and the Florida State University (FSU) faculty in 1998, where she is now Distinguished Research Professor and Jeff F. Owens professor of physics. She is a Fellow of the American Physical Society and of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

Laura Reina’s research focuses on the phenomenology of elementary particle physics, with particular attention to precision physics and Standard Model higher-order effects in collider physics. She has contributed important studies of the production of Higgs bosons and weak vector bosons in association with heavy quarks at hadron colliders and she has promoted the application and development of analytical and numerical algorithms for the systematic implementation of higher order perturbative field theory calculations. Her expertise also includes effective field theories, flavor physics, and the physics of theories beyond the Standard Model.
