“Milla Baldo Ceolin” National Prize for Marta Cocco

Marta Cocco has been awarded the prestigious “Milla Baldo Ceolin” National Prize of the Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare (INFN) for the year 2023. This prize, entitled “Woman in Theoretical Physics”, is assigned to the 10 best master's theses in the field of Theoretical Physics at INFN.

Her thesis “Tidal deformations of a slowly spinning binary system”, carried out under the supervision of Marta Orselli, stood out for the relevance and originality of the results achieved, contributing significantly to the field of Theoretical Physics.

Marta defended her dissertation at University of Perugia in July 2023, presenting results on how the dynamics of a test particle, orbiting a slowly rotating black hole, is affected by a tidal environment generated by an external supermassive black hole.
