I am a senior astronomer at the INAF-Osservatorio Astrofisico di Torino. My main scientific interests are in the field of ground-based and space astrometry, in the construction of wide field surveys for the study of the Galactic stellar populations and the chemo-dynamical evolution of the Milky Way.

Research areas: ground based and Space Astrometry; Photometric systems; stellar statistics; Galaxy models; Local Cosmology

Teaching Assignments: course for PhD students on the Chemo-dynamical evolution of the Milky Way. University of Turin, Graduate Program in Physics
