Giulia Cozzani, former Ph.D. student at LPP, has been awarded with the Vincenzo Ferraro Prize 2022

Giulia Cozzani has been awarded with the Vincenzo Ferraro Award 2022. The Vincenzo Ferraro award is conferred yearly to a young scholar working in the field of space plasma physics who has carried out outstanding work, with particular reference to the doctoral thesis.

Giulia carried out her Ph.D. at LPP between 2016 and 2019, supervised by A. Retinò and P. Canu. The Ph.D. project was carried out in joint supervision with F. Califano at the University of Pisa (Pisa, Italy). After a two-year post-doc at IRF Swedish Institute of Space Physics (Uppsala, Sweden), she is currently working as a post-doc at the University of Helsinki (Helsinki, Finland).

Her research activity is focused on magnetic reconnection in near-Earth plasmas, in particular at the kinetic scale. To investigate this process, she uses in situ spacecraft data from the Magnetospheric Multiscale (MMS) in synergy with numerical simulations (Vlasov, PIC et hybrid- Vlasov codes). Magnetic reconnection is a fundamental process in plasma physics that is responsible for explosive energy conversion in space and laboratory plasmas. The work carried out by Giulia during her Ph.D. revealed the complex structure of the electron diffusion region — the micro-scale region where reconnection takes place. The detailed study of this key region has become possible only recently, allowed by the unprecedented high resolution of MMS measurements. During her postdoc at IRF Uppsala, Giulia’s research activity was focused on the interplay between magnetic reconnection and plasma instabilities. Currently, at the University of Helsinki, she is investigating magnetic reconnection in the global magnetospheric simulations of the hybrid-Vlasov Vlasiator code.
