Martino Romaniello

I was born in Milan, Italy. Tired of the fog that permanently enshrouds it, I moved to sunny Pisa to study Physics, just like Galileo. There, I received my undergraduate degree from the Università degli Studi and, in 1998, my Ph.D. from the Scuola Normale Superiore. During my graduate studies I spent extensive periods of time at the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, MD. I, then, joined the European Southern Observatory (ESO) in Garching near Munich, Germany, as a Postdoctoral Fellow first and, since the year 2000, as an Assistant Astronomer. I currently divide my working hours (almost) evenly between my functional duties in the User Support Group of the ESO Very Large Telescope and my science activity on young stellar populations in the local Universe.
