am an astronomer and I work on resolved stellar populations, to
understand how stellar systems form and evolve with time. Mostly, I
work on globular clusters, but I also like open clusters, dwarf
galaxies in the Local Group, and the Milky Way.
My main area of expertise is the study of stellar chemistry and
kinematics, and for this I helped in developing two pieces of
software: an automated program for EW measurements (DAOSPEC) and
wrapper for running the kurucz abundance code (GALA).
I graduated at the Padova University, was a team member of the ESO Imaging Survey, had my Ph.D. at the Bologna University with a Studentship at ESO. I was first a post-doc and then a staff at the INAF - Bologna Observatory and I am presently at the INAF - Arcetry Observatory.
Since 2005, I am part of the Gaia
DPAC (Data Analysis and Processing Consortium),
leading the group that is building the Gaia SpectroPhotometric Standard
stars grid for its flux calibration.
Since 2011, I am part of the Gaia-ESO Survey, that is observing hundreds of thousands of stellar spectra to complement Gaia data. I am leading the standards and calibrators group.
Since 2012, I am a Senior Scientist at the ASDC (ASI Science Data Center).
Since 2016, I moved to the Arcetri Observatory (INAF).
