Hi, welcome to my personal page! I expect you to have at least some idea of who I am (otherwise, how did you get here in the first place?!?), but let me introduce myself anyway.

My name is Pedro Bernardinelli. I am a DiRAC fellow at the University of Washington, working on the discovery and characterization of outer Solar System bodies. I completed my PhD in physics & astronomy at the University of Pennsylvania (PA - USA; Aug 2016-May 2021) with professors Gary Bernstein and Masao Sako, as a member of the Dark Energy Survey. My thesis focused on a search of the DES data for outer Solar System objects, and we were able to retrieve over 800 TNOs from this data set, as well as a large Oort cloud comet.

I graduated from Universidade de São Paulo (SP - Brazil; Jan 2012-Dec 2015) and worked with prof. Raul Abramo in supernovae Ia cosmology during my final 3 years, taking part in the both the J-PAS and S-PLUS collaborations.

You can find me online in many places. Besides here, I also am on ORCID, on Github, on Twitter, on Instagram and Facebook, but you may not want the last two!

My academic e-mails are phbern@uw.edu and pedrobe@sas.upenn.edu. If you want to contact me about something else, please e-mail me at pedro@bernardinelli.org.
