Proposals for thesis
This is a list of possible subjects for a thesis for both the first or second cycles for a degree in physics or astronomy. The proposed work is mainly on data already acquired.

- Dark matter distribution in the center of Low Surface brightness galaxies.

- Dark matter distribution in bright spiral galaxies. In collaboration with Trieste-SISSA

- Supermassive black holes in the center of spiral and elliptical galaxies

- kinematical decoupling in disk galaxies.

- Counterrotation in disk galaxies. data obtained with the MUSE spectrograph

Curriculum Vitae
Born in 1965. Physics degree at the University "La Sapienza" of Rome (1989). PhD in Astronomy at the University "La Sapienza" of Rome (1995). Post-doc at the Padova University (1995-1996). ESO Fellow at La Silla (Chile) in 1997-1999. Research position at the Padova University in 1999. In 2006 he has been called as Associate Professor at the Padova University. Lecturer in General Astrophysics (Mod.B) and Astronomy Lab. for the degree in Astronomy, he was supervisor of several Master and Ph.D thesis. Member of the IAU, he is in charge for Italy of the NEON (Network of European Observatories in the North, OPTICON) school for Ph.D. students. He studies galaxy dynamics in order to understand their dark matter content, the central black hole mass, the stellar population and, more in general, their evolution.
