Stefania Gori

Stefania Gori
Stefania Gori is a theoretical particle physicist working at the University of California, Santa Cruz. Her research focuses on physics beyond the Standard Model. She received her master’s degree in physics at the University of Pisa and Scuola Normale of Pisa, Italy. She obtained her Ph.D. at the Technical University of Munich, Germany, in 2010 and then moved to North America, where she held postdoctoral positions at the University of Chicago and at the Perimeter Institute for theoretical physics in Waterloo, Canada. She was an assistant professor at the University of Cincinnati in 2016-2018 and then joined the faculty of UCSC in 2018, where she is now an associate professor. She was the recipient of a National Science Foundation Career award for particle physics in 2017. Stefania Gori’s work in theoretical particle physics has ranged over several topics, including Higgs physics, the physics of Dark Matter, flavor physics, and neutrino physics. She has also proposed novel methods for searching for dark sector particles. In particular, she initiated a new beam dump experiment for Fermilab National Laboratory, DarkQuest, to search for long-lived dark particles.
