Formation and evolution of galaxies, focused on the relationship between fundamental parameters that characterize a galaxy with the emission processes in the infrared, sub-millimeter and radio range.

My main interest is to understand in-depth the relationship between the process of star formation with the different internal parameters that characterize galaxies, and how these relationships are affected by the effects of the environment in which they are found, over cosmic time. My studies are focused on the use of large surveys, in order to obtain statistically strong, accurate and efficient scale relationships.
