Welcome to Léo Girardi's homepage

Look at my papers in ADS (including astro-ph preprints).

Recent highlights:

  • NEW: I'm now also abilitated to the role of full professor in Italy. Is there a more useless recognition than this?
  • Finally, I'm on twitter!
  • Stunning near-infrared images of the SMC from the VMC survey.
  • I am pleased to provide you complimentary one-time access to my Annual Reviews article about Red Clump Stars as a PDF file, for your own personal use. Any further/multiple distribution, publication, or commercial usage of this copyrighted material requires submission of a permission request addressed to the Copyright Clearance Center.
  • After releasing UV-to-IR photometry of 117 million stars in Andromeda, PHAT helps NASA to assemble the largest-ever HST image. Especially amusing are the zoomable image and the youtube video.
