I'm an astrophysicist, and more specifically I study the formation and evolution
of galaxies over the life of the Universe by combining observations from telescopes
operating both from the ground and from space, and exploiting the advantages offered
by mounting telescopes on space satellites. I've long been involved in a projects
exploiting ESA and NASA
satellite missions such as Herschel,
Spitzer and ISO,
and more recently I have worked with ESO optical telescopes
such as VST and VISTA to better understand sensitive Radio observations of distant galaxies.
I'm a keen computer user and software developer and a devoted open source content supporter,
and in my spare time I enjoy reading and talking life, politics and science.
On these pages you'll find some more detail about my research and personal interests.
Hope you enjoy your stay...
