Andrea Miglio qualified with a Laurea in Fisica from the Università degli Studi di Milano, Italy 2002. He went on to study for a PhD in astrophysics at the Institut d’Astrophysique, Université de Liège, Belgium. After 3 years as a FNRS postdoctoral fellow in Liège, in early 2011 he joined the School of Physics and Astronomy as a Lecturer.
The common thread of his activities is the development and application of asteroseismic techniques which aim at inferring the internal structure of stars, and at determining their global parameters for studies of stellar populations in the Milky Way.
