Enrico Marchetti graduated in Astronomy in 1993 and obtained the PhD in Space Science and Instrumentation at the University of Padova (Italy) in 1997. His fields of interest are high angular resolution for astronomical applications, in the specific the Adaptive Optics, and optical design. He worked at the Italian Telescopio Nazionale Galileo (Canary Islands, Spain) to develop and commission the telescope's adaptive optics system. He's also author of several key papers on Multi-Conjugate Adaptive Optics (MCAO) theory and demonstration, a technique allowing to extend the limited field of view correction of classical systems. Since 2000 he's working at ESO as Adaptive Optics specialist and he has been the project responsible for the MCAO Demonstrator (MAD) which had the successful first light on sky at the ESO's Very large Telescope on 2007.
