The brain drain in Calabria continues… and is also highly regarded internationally
Calabrian player Lorenzo Barcelona, 29 years old, from Casale del Manco, won the “Bayern Cultural Initiative 2023”, in the “Science” category, created in cooperation with the Bavarian Ministry of Science and Arts.
Lorenzo studied nuclear physics at Unical University where he graduated with honors and academic distinction. Today he is a PhD candidate at the Institute for Theoretical Physics in Regensburg in Bavaria, where he studies interactions between particles in atomic nuclei based on supercomputer simulations.
“Dr. Barca’s findings represent an important piece of the puzzle linking future experimental results to the interactions of neutrinos with the quarks found in protons and neutrons.
The results will now be incorporated into a series of analysis of large-scale international experiments planned in Japan and the United States, and will thus provide an important contribution to a better understanding of the properties of neutrinos.“
