Donal Hill & Marianna Fontana

Donal Hill is a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Oxford, and a member of the LHCb collaboration at CERN. His research focuses on the measurement of fundamental Standard Model parameters using B meson decays, and the calibration of charged particle identification (PID) performance. He also studies B meson decays to final states with tau leptons, in order to perform searches for lepton flavour universality violation. Marianna Fontana is a CERN fellow researcher in the LHCb experiment. Her research activities focus on the search for New Physics effects in the flavour physics sector. She studies rare decays of mesons containing charm quarks and and she contributes to the developments of the muon identification software for the upcoming LHCb upgrade.

Ana Valente

Ana studied astrophysics and cosmology at the universities of Porto and Heidelberg. She joined Springer Nature in 2016 as development editor of open-access journals in physical sciences.
