Welcome to my webpage


I'm a PhD student in Astronomy at the University College London working on the field of exoplanets. My main research interests range from the the study and modeling of exoplanetary atmospheres through transit spectroscopy to the follow-up of transiting exoplanets using small telescopes. I'm actively involved in two proposed space missions aimed to probe the atmospheres of hundreds of exoplanets. I'm also developing tools for the operation of small robotic telescopes, including end-to-end pipelines for the reduction, analysis and archive of astronomical images. Lastly, my research is also focused on remnants of planetary systems around white dwarfs.
