About Me
I am currently a postdoc astronomer at Brera Observatory. My research interests include optical spectroscopy of BL Lacartae objects, circumgalactic medium of quasars and design (from theoretical point of view) of guiding systems and exposure meters for VLT and E-ELT spectrographs.
I have expertise also in C, C++, MySQL, Java and Matlab development.
