8255 Masiero           Discovered 1981 Mar. 2 by S. J. Bus at Siding Spring in the course of the U.K. Schmidt-Caltech Asteroid Survey.
Joseph Masiero (b. 1982) is a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California. His 2009 Ph.D. thesis at the University of Hawaii investigated asteroid polarization. Currently he is processing and analyzing minor-planet measurements by the Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer satellite.
