Dr. Cristiano Galbiati obtained his PhD from the Università degli Studi di Milano. He has been working at Princeton University since 1999, where currently he is a Professor in the Physics Department. His research focuses on dark matter and solar neutrinos. He is a member of the Borexino Collaboration and author of numerous scientific publications on solar neutrinos. Professor Galbiati serves as Co-Spokesperson for the DarkSide collaboration. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Professor Galbiati, and his collaborators; more than 250 physicists, engineers, physicians, and others from 12 countries around the world designed the Mechanical Ventilator Milano (MVM). Due to its lower cost and quick production the MVM is ideal to cover the increased demand for ventilators created by the pandemic.
