The precision of the new generation of cosmic-ray (CR) experiments, such as AMS-02, PAMELA, CALET, and ISS-CREAM, is now reaching the percent level in a wide energy range from GeV/n (per nucleon) to multi-TeV/n. A precise understanding of cosmic-rays production and propagation as well as stringent constraints on dark matter are guaranty results from a precise interpretation of the measured fluxe ... More

Coherent neutrino-nucleus scattering can provide stringent constraints on generalised effective neutrino-quark interactions. While neutrino-quark non-standard interactions (NSI) represent a subset of these generalised interactions, in full generality they may include all possible four-fermion Lorentz structures. Depending on their strength, these new interactions can sizably modify the co ... More

The LHCb experiment has the unique possibility, among the LHC experiments, to be operated in fixed target mode using its internal gas target. The energy scale achievable at the LHC and the excellent detector capabilities for vertexing, tracking and particle identification allow a wealth of novel measurements of great interest for cosmic ray physics. In particular, using a helium target, th ... More

Many limitations in understanding important aspects of hadron collisions become most visible in the forward phase space at colliders. This is where the contributing physics is most soft, however, at the same time the energy transport is by far largest. This is why this region is in particular important for astroparticle physics. The CASTOR calorimeter at CMS has performed a series of measurements ... More

The Standard Model of particle physics have been extremely successful so far, but there are still many unanswered questions like the origin of neutrino mass, nature of dark matter, the source of quark and lepton flavor mixing and their possible correlation, the theory of grand unification of all SM interactions. In this talk I will focus on some interesting models that attempt to answer these ques ... More

The Cryogenic Underground Observatory for Rare Events (CUORE) is the first bolometric experiment searching for neutrinoless double beta decay that has been able to reach the 1-ton scale. The detector consists of an array of 988 TeO2 crystals arranged in a cylindrical compact structure of 19 towers. The construction of the experiment and, in particular, the installation of all towers in the cryosta ... More

We provide the first systematic study of the low-scale leptogenesis scenario in the minimal Standard Model extended with 3 right-handed neutrinos having masses at the GeV scale. We highlight and discuss the differences between the 2- and the 3-right-handed neutrino cases, the major qualitative distinction being the possibility, in the latter scenario, of probing part of the parameter space at the ...

Due to the discrepancy between the observed and predicted average number of muons in air showers, the connection between the average muon content and the development of air showers has been studied extensively in the past. Here we present a study of the physics of the fluctuations of the muon content. In addition to proving that the fluctuations must be dominated by the first interactions, we show ... More

I will discuss the production of charm due to CR interactions in the atmosphere and the implications for astrophysical experiments. I will review both recent theoretical progress in QCD computations of prompt neutrino fluxes and recent developments and attempts of incorporating charm in hadronic interaction models traditionally used for studies of extended air showers.

The GERDA experiment searches for neutrinoless double beta decay of $^{76}$Ge. A discovery of this hypothetical decay would imply the Majorana nature of neutrinos and violation of lepton number conservation. To find this decay, with a half-life beyond 10$^{25}$ yr, gamma-ray spectrometers made from enriched $^{76}$Ge are operated directly immersed in liquid argon. Instrumenting the argon-filled ... More
