Simone Riggi received the Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Catania (Italy) in 2010. He currently holds a permanent position as Research Technologist in the IT and Radio Astronomy group of the INAF-Osservatorio Astrofisico Catania (Italy).
Previously, he was a postdoctoral fellow at the Universidad de Santiago de Compostela (Spain), Centro Siciliano di Fisica Nucleare e Struttura della Materia (Italy) and visiting student at the Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe (Germany). In 2014 he obtained the National scientific qualification (ASN) for Associate Professor – sector 02/A1 (Fisica Sperimentale delle Interazioni Fondamentali).
His research activity mainly focuses on Radio Astronomy, High-Energy Cosmic Rays and Particle Physics, Muon Tomography, Computer Science and Computational Statistics.
He was involved and contributed to several research and technological projects: the Square Kilometer Array (SKA) and its precursors (ASKAP, MeerKAT), the H2020 NEANIAS and AENEAS projects, the Pierre Auger Observatory and the Muon Portal project. He is PI of the INAF PRIN-TEC “CIRASA”.
Present activities include the development of monitoring and control systems for medium/large scientific facilities, simulation and modelling, design and development of data analysis software for astronomy and astroparticle physics, distributed computing and scientific visualization, compact and extended Galactic objects. He is author/co-author of more than 100 scientific publications and conference communications in these research and technological fields.
