Mattia Vaccari's Web Shack

Hi! My name is Mattia Vaccari, and I am a post-doctoral research assistant within the Astrophysics Group of the University of the Western Cape in Cape Town, South Africa, jointly funded by the SKA South Africa project and by the European Commission FP7 HELP project. I was formerly a post-doctoral research assistant within the Department of Astronomy at the University of Padova (2005-2011) and within the Astrophysics Group of Imperial College London (2003-2005). I have previously received a PhD in Space Science & Technology from the Department of Astronomy and the Center for Space Studies and Activities "G. Colombo" of the University of Padova and a MSc in Physics from the Department of Physics "G. Galilei" of the University of Padova.

I am an astrophysicist, and more specifically I study the formation and evolution of galaxies over the life of the Universe by combining observations from telescopes operating both from the ground and from space, and exploiting the advantages offered by mounting telescopes on space satellites. I have long been involved in a projects exploiting ESA and NASA satellite missions such as Herschel, Spitzer and ISO. More recently I have worked with ESO ground-based telescopes such as VST and VISTA to better understand the properties of distant infrared and radio galaxies and I have been involved with the planning of radio observations with the MeerKAT and the SKA. I am a keen computer user and software developer and a devoted open source content supporter, and in my spare time I enjoy reading and talking life, politics and science. I also serve as the coordinator of the Network of Italian Researchers in the Cape (NIRC).

On these pages you'll find some more detail about my research and personal interests. Hope you enjoy your stay...
