Academic & professional experience

- Postdoctoral Associate at Boston University (Oct 2015 - Present)

- PhD at the European Space Astronomy Center (Nov 2012 - June 2015)

- Astronomer tester of the Herschel Interactive Processing Environment (2011 - 2012)

- M. Sc. Astrophysics (2011 - 2012): joint program at Complutense University and Autonoma University in Madrid.

- B. Sc. Physics (Major: Astrophysics) (2005 - 2011): Complutense University (Major: Astrophysics) and University of Salamanca (first three academic years).


I am the lead author of four refereed papers, and co-author of other twelve works.

An up-to-date list of my refereed publications and conference contributions can be found here, or in an ADS seach if you prefer.

Observational experience & observing runs

I have conducted several observing runs (photometry and spectroscopy) with the Isaac Newton Telescope at the Roque de los Muchachos Observatory (Canary Islands), within the context of the DANCe project to study the dynamics of nearby clusters of stars.

I am the Principal Investigator of two high-priority accepted proposals to observe transitional disks in the mid-infrared with the Canaricam instrument at the Gran Telescopio Canarias.

Also, I was co-Investigator of two accepted proposal with the Herschel Space Telescope.
