Silvia Ragaini graduated in Physics at the University of Bologna and completed her Ph.D. at the Astronomy Department of the University of Padova (Italy).
Her Ph.D. thesis "The Galaxy Structure via resolved stellar populations study" had the aim to derive the properties of the Milky Way populations towards the Galactic centre by means of population synthesis techniques.
Silvia is a member of CU5 (DU14 - Explore, define, develop and test methods for the calibration of the absolute response of the instrument) from January 2008 and works with Carla Cacciari and Paolo Montegriffo on the definition of the model of calibration of the absolute response of the instrument. She is working on the development of the necessary algorithms for the CU5 (photometric) pipeline.
