Riccardo Catena is Associate Professor in Physics at the Department of Physics, Chalmers University of Technology (Chalmers), Sweden, where he leads a research group consisting of 1 postdoc, 2 PhD students and 3 master students. Riccardo received the habilitation (venia legendi) at the University of Göttingen, Germany, in 2014 and was promoted to oavlönad docent at Chalmers in 2016. Habilitation and "docentur" represent the highest levels of pedagogical qualification in Germany and Sweden, respectively. He is an elected member of the IUPAP C4 commission on Astroparticle Physics, and a founding member of the council of the European Consortium for Astroparticle Theory (EuCAPT). Riccardo was an elected member of the board of the Section for Elementary Particle and Astroparticle Physics of the Swedish Physical Society from 2017 to 2021. His research is funded by an individual research project grant of the Swedish Research Council and by a research project grant awarded by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation (co-PI).Riccardo's field of research is astroparticle physics – the area of basic science lying at the interface of particle physics, astrophysics and cosmology. His contributions to this field range from the theoretical modelling of physical systems or phenomena which cannot be described by the Standard Model of particle physics, to the interpretation of cosmological and astrophysical data on the origin, composition and evolution of our universe and of its constituents. Currently, his research focuses on dark matter. In this context, Riccardo is especially interested in modelling the microscopic properties of dark matter, in computing their observable consequences, and in designing strategies to experimentally test them.
