Giovanni Covone

astrophysicist

My research interests include the study dark matter in galaxies and clusters of galaxies (mainly by means of gravitational lensing), the evolution of galaxies and the history of astronomy.


Projects

Weak lensing by galaxy clusters (with Mauro Sereno, Martin Kilbinger, Vincenzo Cardone).
Paper 1
Paper 2

Search of strong gravitational lenses in VST surveys data (with N. Napolitano and many others).

Collaborations

VOICE: together with Mattia Vaccari (Cape Town) I lead the deep VST imaging of the CDFS and ES1 sky regions

KiDS: the Public ESO VST survey of 1000 square degrees in the Southern sky

Euclid: the European space telescope, to be launched in 2020.

DarkSide: experiment at the LNGS for the direct detection of dark matter.
