I am a professional astronomer studying protoplanetary disks. I use multi-wavelength observations of large samples of these disks and combine them with statistics to better understand their properties and evolution.
I obtained a Physics degree from Universidad Complutense de Madrid in 2011, and a PhD in Astrophysics from Universidad Autónoma de Madrid and the European Space Astronomy Center (ESA) in 2015 under the supervision of Bruno Merín and Hervé Bouy. During my PhD, I studied the dispersal timescales of protoplanetary disks with large samples of these sources. I also used data from the Herschel Space Observatory and statistical analysis to study the cold, outer regions of transitional disks - disks with cavities that may have been carved by forming planets. Since October 2015, I am a postdoctoral associate in Catherine Espaillat’s research group at Boston University to continue my research on protoplanetary disks and planet formation. I am also interested in statistics and machine learning, and have recently started using interferometry to study protoplanetary disks in higher detail.
