  • TIMSS: Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study

    TIMSS is a series of international assessments of the mathematics and science knowledge of 4th and 8th grade students around the world. TIMSS assessments use the curriculum (broadly defined) as the major organizing concept in order to investigate how the participating countries are providing educational opportunities in mathematics and science to students, and the factors related to how students are using these opportunities.

  • Theoretical tools for rare nuclear decays and dark matter searches
    Neutrinoless double beta decay (0νββ) and detection of dark matter (DM) are presently two of the most important challenges in fundamental physics, and, if detected will revolutionize our understanding of physics.  The research focuses on the development of a more refined theory of double and single beta decay and dark matter, with the expectation of significant scientific and societal impact.

  • PISA: Programme for International Student Assessment (OECD)
    PISA is an international survey that aims to asses the extent to which 15-year-old students have acquired key knowledge and skills that are essential for full participation in modern societies. The assessment, which focuses on reading, mathematics, science and problem-solving, does not just ascertain whether students can reproduce what they have learned; it also examines how well they can extrapolate from what they have learned and apply that knowledge in unfamiliar settings, both in and outside of school.
