I am currently an astrophysicist at the Harvard Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. I work for the Chandra X-ray Center in the Data Systems Operations group as Deputy Lead. I spend significant part of my time working on the   Chandra Source Catalog.

I am interested in multi-wavelength surveys of the extragalactic sky to study galaxies and active super-massive black holes at their center (and not!), in particular the COSMOS survey.

My research is involved in a worldwide collaboration. I am a friendly and passionate person.  Working together is fundamental to improving the relations between different countries, via personal communication with people, very important for personal enrichment and professional career enhancement.

In 2012, I was awarded an X-ray Visionary Project with the Chandra X-ray Observatory to observe the COSMOS field for 2.8 Million of seconds and study the cosmic evolution of black holes and galaxies.
