Giovanni Covone (University of Naples "Federico II", Italy)
Speaker Introduction : 
Giovanni Covone has studied as PhD student at University "Federico II" of Naples and at the MIT. He obtained his PhD in Physics from University "Federico II" of Naples in 2001. Then he worked as postodc at the National Telescope Galileo (Spain) until 2003,
at the CNRS-Laboratoire d'Astrophysique de Marseille (France) until 2006, at the INAF-Capodimonte Observatory (Italy) until 2007.
Since 2008, he is assistant professor at the Department of Physics of the University of Naples. His main research interests include strong and weak gravitational lensing, observational cosmology and the study of the dark matter properties. He is currently leading the survey VOICE at the VLT Survey Telescope, and he is member of the collaborations KiDS, Euclid and DarkSide.
