Francesco Nozzoli is a researcher at Trento Institute for Fundamental Physics and Applications (INFN) and he currently leads the Trento AMS-02 group.

After obtaining Master’s degree and PhD in Particle Physics from the University of Rome “Tor Vergata” in Italy with thesis on the search for Solar Axions and Dark Matter with a 250kg NaI(Tl) experiment at the Gran Sasso National Laboratory (INFN), he turned to Astroparticle Physics in Space joining the AMS-02 team of the Asi Science Data Center (Rome).

He contributed to the analysis of Positron and Antiproton search in collaboration with Perugia AMS-02 and to AMS-02 Anticoincidence detector reconstruction software and in 2017 he moved to INFN-TIFPA leading the Trento AMS-02 group focusing on isotope flux measurements and antideuterium search.
