Profile Summary

Dr. Fineschi has more than 20 years of experience in the development and operation of space instrumentation for spectroscopy and polarimetry in the visible and UV wavelength bands. His scientific interests include the application of atomic spectroscopy and polarimetry to UV and visible-light remote-sensing techniques for the study of the solar wind and the coronal magnetic field. He has been involved in several solar space missions of NASA and ESA (SMM, Spartan/Space-Shuttle, SOHO, Solar Orbiter), sounding-rocket solar experiments (SCORE), and eclipse campaigns. He is currently the Project Scientist for the METIS coronagraph on the Solar Orbiter mission and the Principal Investigator of the sounding-rocket coronographic experiment (SCORE) for the sub-orbital re-flight of the HERSCHEL payload.
