Gianfranco Bertone

I am the spokesperson of the GRAPPA Institute, and an Associate Professor at the University of Amsterdam, where I lead a research team investigating topics at the interface between Particle Physics and Cosmology.

After a PhD at the University of Oxford and the Institute of Astrophysics in Paris, I have held teaching and research positions at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, the University of Padova and the University of Zurich, before going back to Paris as a permanent CNRS researcher. I joined GRAPPA in 2011.

I am the editor-in-chief of the new “Physics of the Dark Universe” journal, and I have recently published my first popular science book “Behind the Scenes of the Universe: from the Higgs to Dark Matter“, with Oxford University Press.

My research interests include Particle Dark Matter, High-Energy Astrophysics, Ultra-High Energy Cosmic Rays, Theories with Extra-Dimensions, Intermediate and Supermassive Black Holes, Physics beyond the Standard Model, Physics of Compact Stars and General Relativity.
