Audrey Delsanti (French: [odʁɛ dɛlsɑ̃ti]; born 27 August 1976) is a French astronomer and a discoverer of minor planets at ESO's La Silla Observatory in Chile.

The Minor Planet Center credits her with the discovery of two numbered minor planets,[1] but erroneously gives the credit to "A. Dalsanti" for the trans-Neptunian object (40314) 1999 KR16, which she co-discovered in 1999.

In 2004 she was awarded a NASA Postdoctoral Fellowship in astrobiology at the Institute for Astronomy of the University of Hawaii in Honolulu.
