Welcome to my webpage! Here you can find all you ever wanted to know about me but never asked... scientifically speaking, of course!
After obtaining my Ph.D. in Astrophysics from the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias in 2013, I moved to the beautiful island of Big Island (Hawaii), where I worked at the Subaru Telescope as Extragalactic Research Specialist until June 2016. Afterward, I moved to an even bigger island, Australia! From July 2016 to July 2018 I worked at Swinburne University of Technology as a Research Fellow. Since September 2018 I am back to my hometown Barcelona as a Junior Leader 'la Caixa' Fellow!
My main interests are focused on shedding some light into the puzzle of galaxy formation and evolution. I am particularly interested in how the sizes, morphologies and stellar populations of galaxies vary over cosmic time and their relation with the supermassive black holes found in their centers.
if you want to know more about these hot topics or take a look at the Research section... or visit the More in Life section to gossip about my other passions!
