Gaia Science Operations


Main Research Fields

My main research interests are the study of star forming regions, focusing on the dynamical and chemical composition of the interstellar medium: for this I used high spectroscopy far-infrared data of space-based telescopes and chemical models that predicts its spectral signature.

I am also interested in the study of hiper velocity stars in globular clusters and its relation with the presence of posible black holes by the analysis of large astrometry catalogues like Gaia.
