Fernando de Felice
University of Padova
Fernando de Felice is a core member of the Relativity and Reference Frame Working Group (RRFWG) of Gaia. His main task is to lead the RAMOD project to completion. This project is aimed at developing a numerical code which will take into account the general relativistic effects (due to the Sun and to most of the Solar System planets and their largest satellites) required to correct the Gaia observations in order to achieve microarcsecond accuracies. The RAMOD project is a joint collaboration with Beatrice Bucciarelli, Maria Teresa Crosta, Mario Lattanzi and Alberto Vecchiato of Torino Observatory.
Fernando de Felice is working in the fields of general relativity and astrophysics. His current position is full professor of theoretical physics at the University of Padova (Italy).
