Ciro Pappalardo is a researcher at IA. He was awarded a first degree in Astronomy by the University of Bologna in 2002, a Master degree by the University of Bologna in 2005 and a PhD by the University of Strasbourg (France) in 2010. He is a member of IA since 2013.
His current research interests focus on galaxy evolution. He has a strong expertise in spectral analysis of optical data, and millimeter radio observations with different telescopes. In particular, he is the manager of the Portuguese ALMA Centre of Expertise, responsible for ALMA data analysis and validation, with the goal of growing the radio community in Portugal.He is highly competent working with multi-wavelength data, both spectroscopic and photometric, spanning the Ultra Violet-Far Infrared range and proficient in the study of the environmental effects on galaxy evolution, on statistical analysis of galaxies number counts, and on spectral energy distribution analysis.
He has experience as an examiner for the University, a tutor for fellows and Erasmus students, and in teaching. Within the MOONS consortium, the next generation spectrograph planned to be operational in 2021, he is at present the coordinator of the Technical Working Group, responsible for the reference catalog of the survey.
