About my research: My research is focused on resolved stellar populations in the Milky Way and Local Group. I am a postdoctoral research in the group of stellar clusters led by Jura Borissova. Currently I am focused on the characterization of a particular star forming region in the Milky Way, studying its young stellar population, to try to understand the triggering of star formation in the region. To study these objects I use mainly the VVV infrared photometric catalog. I am also interested in globular clusters and their variable star population, particularly RR Lyrae stars. I am part of the Millenium Institute of Astrophysics (MAS)
