Научная биография

Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Naples in March 2001.

Professor De Lellis is a world leading expert on a nuclear emulsion technology, with particular emphasis in neutrino physics. He made his Ph.D. thesis on the search for double-charm production in charged-current neutrino interactions in the CHORUS experiment at CERN and he observed in the nuclear emulsion films the first event ever detected of this kind. He was elected Spokesperson of the OPERA Collaboration in 2012 when the Collaboration had published only one tau neutrino candidate. He was leading the Collaboration to its scientific success: in 2015 the Collaboration reported 5 events with a 5-sigma evidence of tau neutrino appearance, while in 2018 10 events were published with more than 6 sigma evidence. He was among the proponents of the SHiP experiment at CERN and in particular he is leading the effort on the neutrino and dark matter detector. He has also proposed an innovative approach to the search for dark matter from galactic origin, an experiment named NEWSdm to be carried out in underground laboratories.

Professor De Lellis got various grants, including Innovative Training Network grant.

He is an author of more than 100 publications, with h-factor = 33. He has also got a Patent from the World Intellectual Property Organization.

Professor De Lellis has supervised 9 Ph.D. students and 13 master students.
