Stefano Davini's interests lie at the intersection of particle physics, astrophysics and cosmology. His first important research experience was at the Borexino experiment at the Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso, which became the basis for both his undergraduate (2008) and PhD theses (2012). He is currently also involved in the DarkSide experiment at Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso, which aims to use a low backround underground Argon detector and an active neutron veto for the possible detection of dark matter particles.
