Maria Teresa Crosta
Observatoire de la Côte d'Azur
Maria Teresa Crosta is a core member of the Relativity and Reference Frame Working Group (RRFWG) of Gaia. Her main activity is devoted to modelling the Gaia observations within the precepts of General Relativity and to estimating some relativistic effects which can appear in the data reduction process. She started to study these topics during her Ph.D. thesis under the supervision of Prof. F. de Felice (University of Padua) and in close collaboration with the Astrometric Group at the Observatory of Turin (in particular Mario Lattanzi and Alberto Vecchiato).
Maria Teresa is currently Poincaré Fellow at the Observatoire de la Côte d'Azur, working with F. Mignard on the relation between TCB/time on-board, and on the assessment of the relativity experiment close to Jupiter's edge.
