"For achievements in applying a new non-perturbative approach to evaluate QED and strong isospin breaking effects on hadron masses and weak decays using lattice QCD+QED simulations."


Davide Giusti, Ph.D., completed his undergraduate and graduate degrees at Roma Tre University (Italy) in 2014 and 2016, respectively, graduating summa cum laude with a M.Sc. in theoretical particle physics. In 2020, he completed his Ph.D. in physics, also at Roma Tre University, under the guidance of Vittorio Lubicz and Silvano Simula, defending a dissertation entitled "Isospin Breaking Corrections to Masses and Hadronic Processes on the Lattice” with the highest distinction. He has received several awards, including the Sergio Fubini Prize from the National Institute for Nuclear Physics in Italy, the Antonio Stanghellini Prize from the Italian Physical Society and the Enrico Persico Fellowship from the Accademia dei Lincei. In 2019, he became a postdoctoral research scientist at the University of Regensburg (Germany). Since 2020, Dr. Giusti has been a lecturer at the same institution where he continues his research in hadronic physics using first-principles lattice quantum chromodynamics techniques. He is one of the active young experts in large-scale lattice calculations and he has made significant contributions to the theoretical determination of the muon anomalous magnetic moment, currently one of the most promising places to test the limits of the Standard Model of particle physics and look for evidence of new physics.
