I joined the LHCb experiment in 2010 and focussed my work on electroweak physics, rare b-hadron decays and lepton universality. I was responsible for the measurements of W and Z boson production during Run-1 and I co-convened the "Electroweak" sub-working group for two years. I tested lepton universality using B0→K∗0l+l−− decays and I co-convened the "Electroweak Penguin Decays" sub-working group for one year. I am currently co-convening the "Rare Decays" working group. As a member of the NA48 and NA62 collaborations between 2002 and 2009, I made extensive studies of rare kaon decays: I performed original analyses of the KS,L→π∓μ±ν and K±→π±γγ processes and contributed to the operation and maintenance of the detector.
