Argia is a theoretical physicist interested in the application of Quantum Field Theory to Elementary Particle Physics. In particular, her research focuses on strongly interacting theories, such as QCD and BSM theories, experimentally tested at the large hadron collider at CERN (Geneva). These theories require a non-perturbative formulation and the only known method to study them, based on first principles, is lattice gauge theories. This formulation is defined on a finite Euclidean space-time which renders the theory regularised and allows one to use Monte Carlo simulations to evaluate the path integral. In order to best use the computational power, it is relevant to understand how to both improve the performances of the algorithm used and minimise the systematic error introduced by the lattice discretisation.
Argia did her Bachelor and Master at Sapienza University in Rome, Italy.
Then she moved to do her PhD at Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland.
