Francesca De Angeli
Institute of Astronomy
Francesca De Angeli completed her PhD at the Astronomy Department of the University of Padova (Italy) at the end of 2004. During her PhD she worked on photometry and radial velocity data of Galactic globular clusters. She has been also developing a new technique to determine accurate distances and ages of globular clusters through axisymmetric modelling of their internal dynamics.
Francesca is now a postdoctoral fellow at the Institute of Astronomy, University of Cambridge (UK). There she is collaborating with Floor van Leeuwen on the preparation of a software tool-box, aimed at providing basic algorithms for future shell and core tasks for the Gaia data analysis. She is also involved with the Simulation and Photometry working group activities.
