Hola and welcome to my web page!
I am a postdoc working at the Max-Planck-Institut für Radioastronomie
My main research interests are:
- Radio astronomy
- Centimeter- and millimeter-wave Very Long Baseline Interferometry
- High precision astrometry
- Early stages of star formation
- High-energy processes in young stars
- Multiplicity of young stars
- Astrophysical masers
I have focused recently on using Very Long Baseline Interferometry (VLBI) to study various astrophysical phenomena with ultra-high angular resolution.
I am currently a collaborator of the following projects:
- A Global View on Star Formation (GLOSTAR) - continuum and line VLA observations toward Cygnus X
- Dynamical Masses of Young Stellar Multiple Systems with the VLBA (DYNAMO)
- The Gould's Belt Distance Survey (GOBELINS)
Other current projects include:
- A VLA/VLBA search for water masers in Serpens South
- SiO maser astrometry to V838 Mon with the VLBA
- A VLBA search for brown dwarfs and substellar companions in pre-main sequence stars and nearby M dwarfs
I also collaborated in the Event Horizon Telescope Project
from 2014 to 2017 on commissioning
the Large Millimeter Telescope (LMT
) in Puebla, Mexico for VLBI.
Please contact me if you are interested in any of these projects.
