About my research: My main research area focus on the study of protoplanetary disks, and in particular, transition disks. As an observer astronomer, I use high contrast imaging techniques to directly image the faint protoplanetary disks at optical wavelengths, near infrared and millimeter wavelengths (ALMA). I’m also interested in studying the fraction of close binaries in transition disks
