Main Research Fields

My main research interests are in instrumentation for space astronomy (UV, Optical, IR) , detector system technology and instrument calibration and characterization. In particular:

  • CCD and CMOS detectors for space application
  • Effects of radiation damage
  • Photometry and photometric systems

I am also interested in star formation, initial mass function and in start clusters in the nearby universe.


  • Optical and IR detectors
  • Photometry and photometric Systems
  • Spectroscopy
  • Star formations, initial mass function, star clusters

Ongoing collaborations

  • NIRSpec GTO Team
  • INAF (F. Annibali, M. Tosi)
