M. (Manuela) Vecchi, Prof

Associate Professor - Rosalind Franklin Fellow


I have experience in the detection of high-energy messengers, including neutrinos, cosmic rays, and gamma rays. I have five years of experience in neutrino astronomy, for my PhD and one post-doctoral fellowship on the ANTARES and KM3NeT underwater neutrino telescopes. During my PhD, I set the first upper limit on the flux of neutrinos from the supergalactic plane and later worked on the search for neutrinos from the Fermi-Bubbles. My technical contributions to neutrino astronomy include the development of an online reconstruction algorithm for a real-time optical follow-up of neutrino events and the characterisation of optical properties of deep-sea sites for the installation of future neutrino telescopes in the Mediterranean. I have ten years of experience in the detection of Galactic Cosmic rays, as a member of the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS-02). My main contributions to the AMS-02 collaboration are related to the calibration of the electromagnetic calorimeter, and to the analysis of the electron and positron fluxes. I am currently working on the isotopic composition of Galactic CRs. I am a member of the CTA Collaboration since 2015, and I have been working on DM searches from the dSph galaxies. I also have experience in the phenomenology of CR sources and propagation, being the author of several papers on this topic. I am a Rosalind Franklin fellow at RUG since 2018.
