Curriculum vitae

  • 1987: Degree in Astronomy summa cum laude at the University of Bologna. Thesis Title: "Synthetic spectra of quasars".
  • 1991: PhD in Astronomy at the University of Bologna. Thesis Title: "Astronomical Spectroscopy with optical fibres".
  • 1991-92: Post-doctoral Fellow at the Observatoire de Paris-Meudon, working on ESO optical fibre instruments (MEFOS, FUEGOS).
  • 1993-present: Research Astronomer. INAF – Osservatorio Astronomico di Bologna.
  • The scientific activity has been mainly focused in the Active Galactic Nuclei (X-ray surveys - Optical/Near IR Identifications of X-ray sources – Analysis of optical spectra & Near Infrared/Optical Morphology – Unconventional AGN) and Observational Cosmology (Galaxy surveys - Deep photometric and spectroscopic data analysis – redshift measurement and analysis – spectral classification and spectral evolution of galaxies).
