Argia Rubeo is a PostDoc fellow in the Climate Simulation and Prediction division.
She obtained her PhD in Physics at Trinity College Dublin in 2019. The research project concerns the application of Quantum Field Theory to Elementary Particle Physics. In particular, the theory of quarks and gluons, known as QuantumChromoDynamics (QCD), experimentally tested at the large hadron collider at CERN (Geneva), where she has had a collaboration later during a postdoc at Plymouth University. QCD is a strongly interacting theory at the hadronic scale, ∼ O(1GeV), and as such it requires a non-perturbative formulation. The only known method to study it, based on first principles, is lattice QCD. This formulation is defined on a finite Euclidean space-time which renders the theory regularised and allows one to use Monte Carlo simulations to evaluate the path integral.
She obtained her master and bachelor in Particle Physics at Sapienza university of Rome. The results obtained with both the collaborations in Rome and in Dublin have been presented at the lattice conference and published.
Her focus is currently on climate science.
