Stefano Andreon Homepage

I am an astronomer of INAF-Osservatorio Astronomico di Brera.

My main interest is understanding how galaxies evolve from an observational point of view and using Bayesian methods, that I teach (so far at 13 universities spread in 7 countries). I study the structure of the universe up to redshift one and above. I discovered the galaxy cluster at the highest redshift known, JKCS041 at z=1.803 and lead author of Bayesian Methods for the Physical Sciences book. I'm presently deeply involved with the Euclid mission, with the VIDEO survey, and with its successor, VEILS. I'm the Secretary (and member of the Council) of the International Astrostatistic Association and Member of the Astroinformatics and Astrostatistics Commission Organizing Committee of the International Astronomical Union. In 2016, I award the status of  IAA fellow.

In the recent past, I was at INAF-Osservatorio Astronomico di Capodimonte, and I taught information science at the Milan University. I was a member of the XMM-LSS project, where I lead the (cluster) identification working group, and I was PI of the VST-OAC survey.
