Hi! My name is Igor Andreoni and I am a researcher.
I use telescopes to discover and understand the most extreme events happening in the Universe. Massive stars die in spectacular explosions that we can observe out to billions of light years away. Black holes and neutron stars crash against each other, releasing gravitational waves that we can capture with instruments such as the LIGO and Virgo interferometers. Thanks to the visionary work of scientists, now we are able to look & listen to the Universe.
I discover and study astronomical transients using many telescopes,
including the Dark Energy Camera, the Zwicky Transient Facility, and telescopes part of the GROWTH network.

During my PhD I worked at the "Deeper Wider Faster" program, aiming at discovering the fastest bursts in the sky including counterparts to fast radio bursts and gravitational wave events.
