Francesco Sannino has been a researcher in Denmark for almost twenty years, and his contributions to the fields of theoretical high energy physics are both numerous and ground-braking. In 2015, he was elected to the Finnish Academy for Science and Letters, making him one of the very few researchers to be a member of two such academies.
