Profile Summary

I awarded my PhD in Astronomy with Cum Laude on Mar 2006 at the University of Barcelona.

I earned for three years the "Juan de la Cierva" fellowship at the Astronomy Department, University of Barcelona (2010-2012). During that period, I was several times Visitor Scientist at ESO (Garching), Subaru Headquarters (Hilo), and NARIT (Chiang Mai).

I have been Postdoctoral Research Associate for four years (2014-2017) at the University of North Calorina at Chapel Hill (UNC-CH), as a member of the Evryscope team.
Since early 2018, I retain a dual fruitful research affiliation with UNC-CH (working as a core member of the Evryscope team), and as a member of the Institut the Ciencies del Cosmos (ICCUB) in Barcelona.
