Mattia Vaccari's Web Shack

Hi! My name is Mattia Vaccari, and I am an astrophysicist based in Cape Town, South Africa, where I work as eResearch Director and Coordinator of Data Intensive Research at the University of the Western Cape and as an AstroInformatics Research Professor at the Inter-University Institute for Data Intensive Astronomy (IDIA). I was formerly a senior research fellow at the University of the Western Cape (2011-2017), the University of Padova (2005-2011) and 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 "Giuseppe Colombo" of the University of Padova and a MSc in Physics from the Department of Physics "Galileo 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, exploiting the advantages offered by mounting telescopes on space satellites. I have long been involved in projects using ESA and NASA space satellites 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 am involved with the planning and scientific exploitation of radio observations with the MeerKAT and the SKA. I am also involved in the management and in the scientific exploutation of the ilifu Cloud Computing Facility. In my spare time I enjoy reading and talking life, politics and science. I am 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...
