Marienza Caldarola recieves the Milla Baldo Ceolin 2021 National Prize for Women in Theoretical Physics
  • IFT PhD student Marianza Caldarola has won the Milla Baldo Ceolin 2021 National Prize for Women in Theoretical Physics, which promotes the presence of young researchers in science through awards like this. She earned her Master's degree at the University of Padua, in Italy, during the year she spent at the university.

The award ceremony for the 2021 Baldo Ceolin Milla Award was held on October 21 at the Villa Galileo in Arcetri, Florence. Other awardees include Angelica Albertini (University of Turin), Chiara Calascibetta (University of Rome Tor Vergata), Sofia Maggioni (University of Milan Bicocca) and Viviana Viggiano (University of Bari).

It is awarded annually to the best master's thesis submitted by researchers working in theoretical physics, established by INFN (National Institute of Nuclear Physics) and conferred by the GGI Galileo Galilei Institute, the INFN National Center dedicated to advanced training in theoretical physics. In particular, field and string theory, elementary particle phenomenology, nuclear and hadronic physics, mathematical methods, astroparticle physics and cosmology, statistical physics and applied field theory are topics of interest to the INFN National Scientific Commission IV.

The prize, which aims to encourage the presence of young researchers in this field of physics, is named after a great scientist, international renown researcher, long-time director of the INFN Section in Padua and the first woman to occupy a professorship at the University of Padua. Milla Baldo Ceolin has carried out research in particle physics on the CERN accelerator machines, Berkeley and Argonne accelerators in the United States, the ITEP accelerator in Moscow, and the OLC reactor in Grenoble.

As part of the "GGPaths, in the footsteps of Galileo Galilei: scientific paths in Arcetri" project, co-financed by the Tuscany Region, the GGI and the System of University Museums organized a public event called She-Science to promote women in scientific research through meetings, experiments, conferences, and experimental music.
