Simone Bacchio was born in Torino, Italy, 1991. He got the Bachelor's Degree in Physics in July 2013 and graduated in Theoretical Physics in July 2015 at University of Torino. His master thesis was on the study of quark mass dependence in the quark-antiquark potential, computed on Lattice QCD, and supervised by Prof. M. Caselle and Prof. M. Panero.
His research interests focus on particle physics, standard model and in particular lattice approach to gauge theories. Outside physics, he is passionate about motorcycles, rugby and rock'n'roll music. He also likes dancing and grappling with 30's-50's American dance styles.
Simone Bacchio has been selected for the position of ESR 5 with joint degree awarding Institutions the University of Cyprus (UCY) and the Bergische Universität Wuppertal (BUW). The project entitled "Scalable algorithms for solvers and noise reduction techniques for disconnected quark loops in lattice QCD" is supervised by Prof. Constantia Alexandrou and Prof. Andreas Frommer.
