Dr. Gabriele Varieschi was born in Milan, Italy, the land of Galileo, Volta, Fermi and many other famous scientists. He studied physics at the University of Milan, graduating with a thesis in Applied Superconductivity at the INFN - LASA laboratory. After finishing his undergraduate education, he worked as a physics and math instructor at a local Jesuit High School, the "Istituto Leone XIII", before moving to sunny southern California in 1994.

As a graduate student, he studied at the Physics and Astronomy Department, UCLA, receiving his M.S. in 1996, and his Ph.D. in Physics in 2000. His field of research was theoretical Astro-Particle Physics, the interface field between Particle Physics and Astrophysics, with a focus on Cosmic Rays and Neutrinos.

After completing his graduate studies, he joined the Physics Department at Loyola Marymount University, where he combines his research interests in Elementary Particle Physics, Gravitation and Cosmology, with a strong commitment to undergraduate teaching.

In his free time, Dr. Varieschi enjoys spending time with his family, planning winter ski trips and summer visits to his native country. He also likes to play classical guitar and renaissance lute music.
