Catia joined the Communication Office of the Italian National Institute for Nuclear Physics (INFN) in 2004. Having graduated in Mathematics at the Rome University “La Sapienza” (2002) she then achieved a Master in Communication of Science in Milan (2003). Since 2007 she has also officially been recognised as a journalist. At INFN Catia has been working on the creation and organisation of exhibitions. Additionally she has organised several outreach events on Particle Physics, such as “Physics on the boat.”  Catia assumed the role of Italy’s representative to IPPOG in 2008 and took over the role of country coordinator for IPPOG’s “International Masterclasses” in Italy the same year. From 2009 until 2010 she was the European leader of the Workpackage on Communication and Outreach of the European Project “Extreme Light Infrastructure” and has been managing editor of INFN’s publication “Asimmetrie” since January 2011. “Working for IPPOG is a great experience for me. It combines my commitment to developing outreach with my personal interest in working in an international environment.”
