Continuous development is the key for winning future challenges. This is true for most human activities, and science makes no exception.
Besides designing, constructing and running our experiments for years, we spend a large fraction of our time in developing new technologies for future endeavours. Scientists never stop working to improve what seemed perfect until yesterday, even abandoning what looks like a good solution, if it is going to become a limitation for the next experiment.
The byproducts of such a relentless activity impact all aspects of our everyday life: the examples of how technology transferred from science to society helped bettering our lives are countless.
I work on developing instruments and techniques for particle physics, aimed at future experiments in space and at colliders. There are three main lines of development I work on:
