Marco is an ESA/AURA III Astronomer and Calibration Lead for the Advanced Camera for surveys onboard the Hubble Space Telescope. He joined the position at the Space Telescope Science Institute in 2005 as a member of the ACS Team.

He obtained his PhD in Astrophysics from SISSA/ISAS (International School for Advanced Studies, Trieste, Italy).

His main research interests focus on the physics of radio-loud Active Galactic Nuclei.  

He is a leading member of the HST-3C collaboration, which studies radio-loud AGNs at all redshifts with high-spatial resolution Hubble observations and other telescopes.

Science Interests:

  • radio galaxies, quasars and relativistic jets
  • low-luminosity AGNs
  • accretion processes around supermassive black holes
  • the origin of the radio-quiet / radio-loud AGN dichotomy
  • the cluster environment of radio-loud AGN
  • AGN triggering mechanisms and galaxy mergers
  • supermassive black hole mergers and gravitational waves


Research Topics: Active Galactic Nuclei, Supermassive Black Holes, Galaxy Mergers, High Energy Astrophysics, Optical, UV and IR Astronomy, Gravitational Waves
