I’m an observational astrophysicist

My research tries to understand how galaxies form and evolve through cosmic time.

My expertise is the processing of astronomical photometric data. This allows me to study the dimmest galaxies and regions of galaxies, which provide crucial clues about the properties and evolution of the Universe.

I’m interested in any science related with low surface brightness.
