Cristina Lazzeroni graduated in Physics in 1992 at the University of Pisa, Italy, with a research in Particle Physics on beauty meson decays. Immediately after, at the same university, she did her PhD in beauty production at fixed target in an experiment at CERN. After her PhD, she moved to Edinburgh first, then to Cambridge where she worked on kaon and beauty physics until 2007, when she moved to Birmingham University.
