Lorenzo Perrone was born on August 10, 1971, in Florence, Italy. He received a degree in physics with a thesis about high-energy neutrino propagation through matter from the Faculty of Science, University of Florence, Italy, in 1997, and a Ph.D. degree with a thesis entitled “Search for astrophysical sources of high energy neutrinos with MACRO detector” in 2001. From December 2001 to February 2003, he held a postdoc position (BAT-IIa) at the University of Karlsruhe (Germany) and, from March 2003 to August 2005, a postdoc faculty position (BAT-IIa) at the University of Wuppertal (Germany). Since September 2005, he has held a faculty permanent position as a Teaching Assistant and a Lecturer at the Engineering Faculty, University of Lecce (Italy). His research activity includes astroparticle physics: high-energy cosmic rays and neutrino physics. Currently, he is a Member of the Pierre Auger Collaboration and of the ARGO-YBJ experiment.
