Address: DIAS, A&A Section, 31 Fitzwilliam Place, Dublin 2, Ireland
Research Interests ): Star formation, protostellar jets & disks, low-mass and high-mass YSOs, optical-infrared interferometry.
Alessio Caratti o Garatti got degree in Physics at Univeristy of Rome “La Sapienza” (2001), and completed his PhD in Astronomy at the University of Rome “Tor Vergata” (2006). He worked on protostellar jets in the NIR (2006-2008) as an experienced researcher in the FP6 Marie Curie Research & Training Network ‘JETSET’ (at the Thüringer Landessternwarte Tautenburg, Tautenburg, Germany). As a post-dcotoral researcher, he worked in the ‘Spitzer Gould Belt Survey Legacy’ at the Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies (2009-2011) and in infrared interferometry of YSOs at the Max Planck Institute for Radioastronomy in Bonn, Germany (2012-2014). From 2014 he is working again at DIAS where he is involved in the scientific exploitation of GRAVITY at VLTI and MIRI on the JWST.
