Franco Meddi is an experimental physicist, associate professor at Sapienza University of Rome (Italy). He is active in nuclear and elementary particle physics experiments at LHC at CERN (Geneva, Switzerland) and at Jefferson Laboratory (Virginia, USA), contributing to the development and implementation of silicon detectors. At CERN, he firstly worked on an annular geometry segmented silicon detector (Ring Counter), developing the multiplicity trigger for the selection of events with specific values of centrality in the collisions between ultrarelativistic nuclei (experiments NA34 - Helios and NA57). He then worked for the internal tracker (ITS) of the experiment ALICE. In particular, he was involved in all the aspects, including the research and development phases, of the construction of the pixel and drift detectors that were part of ALICE ITS. Currently, he is developing silicon microstrips detectors for the JLAB Hall A SBS spectrometer and is collaborating also with a group of astrophysics realizing a silicon fast photometer (SiFAP) based on a silicon photomultiplier detectors (SiPM), devoted to measure pulsar signals.
