Team members

The ASTRODEEP team collects most of the PI (or main Co-I) of all major ultradeep surveys, covering also the whole range of the electromagnetic spectrum: CANDELS at HST, ground based imaging at VLT and LBT and ULTRAVISTA at VISTA, GOODS-HERSCHEL, HERMES@HERSCHEL, PEP@HERSCHEL, SPUDS@SPITZER, XMM-COSMOS and Chandra on CDFS. This ensures the highest technical and scientific expertise in the analysis and prompt exploitation if these data.
