Fernando is an Argentinean physicist working on experimental High Energy Physics at Instituto de Física La Plata (IFLP/UNLP/CONICET) in La Plata Argentina. Member of the ATLAS collaboration at the LHC/CERN since 2006.
Fernando did his master thesis in physics at Universidad de Buenos Aires (UBA) and graduated as PhD at IFLP in 2011 working on tuning the ATLAS photon triggers and studying its performance precisely for the (back then) search of the Higgs boson in the di-photon channel.
He currently works closely in software and physics performance of electron and photon triggers of the ATLAS detector. He is also involved on searches of super-symmetry. In addition he is involved on preparations, design and research of the hardware trigger for the Phase-II upgrade of the ATLAS detector towards the HL-LHC
