Nicola Orlando

Nicola joined the ATLAS experiment in 2009 as a Master’s student at INFN Lecce and Università del Salento in Italy, where he also contributed to the ATLAS physics program as PhD student. He is currently a postdoctoral researcher at Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. His main research activity concerns the ATLAS Standard Model physics, including hard strong-interactions and electroweak measurements. Beyond particle physics, he loves traveling, hiking, kayaking, martial arts, contemporary art, and rock-music festivals.
