Professor Pierre Salati

works in theoretical astrophysics and astroparticle physics in the ENSLAPP group of the particle physics laboratory LAPP, in Annecy (France). He also teaches at the Universite de Savoie and at the Ecole Normale Superieure de Lyon..

Pierre Salati graduated from the Ecole Normale Superieure de la rue d'Ulm in 1981. After a PhD in particle physics and cosmology at the University de Savoie, he spent two years, from 1987 to 1989, at the University of California at Berekeley as a Fellow of the Miller Institute for Basic Research in Science. He also spent two years at CERN in the Theory Division. He has worked on the astrophysical and cosmological consequences of supersymmetric theories. He is currently interested in the dark matter problem and the possibility that globular clusters may hide substantial amounts of low-mass stars. He is also working on the gamma-ray diffuse emission and on the production of anti-protons from cosmic rays
