## Scientific and teaching activity

Since 2007 Professor Gronchi has taught several Mathematical Physics courses of the degree programme in Mathematics. Since 2015 he has also taught Rational Mechanics for the degree programme in Aerospace Engineering.

Professor Gronchi’s main research fields deal with the following topics: orbit determination, algebraic and variational methods in celestial mechanics, singularities and periodic orbits of the N-body problem, Hamiltonian theory of perturbations, solar system dynamics.

Since 2014 he has been president of the Italian Society of Celestial Mechanics and Astrodynamics (SIMCA) and vice-president of the IAU Inter-Division A-F Commission Celestial Mechanics and Dynamical Astronomy since 2021. His name “Gronchi” has been given to asteroid (96217) for his scientific contributions to Celestial Mechanics and its application to Astronomy.

From November 2020 to June 2022, he was coordinator of the Group of Experts for Evaluation (GEV) of the Research in Mathematics and Computer Science (Area 1) for VQR 2015-2019.

From 2012 to 2017 he was responsible for the University of Pisa of the ITN Marie Curie `Stardust', (FP7-PEOPLE-2012-ITN, GA 317185). Since 2019 he has been responsible for the University of Pisa of the ITN Marie Slodowska Curie `Stardust-Reloaded', (H2020-MSCA-ITN-2018, GA 813644).
