About my research: My immediate work is aimed at understanding the protoplanetary disk evolution, mainly the transition between the primordial disks (CTTS) to the more evolved disks (WTTS or Debris), passing through the Transition Disk (TD) phase. To carry out this task I take advantage of large spectral range spectroscopy (mainly XSHOOTER), (sub)-mm observations (including APEX and ALMA), as well as other sources of information. I’m also interested in the exoplanetary transits field, where I look for new planets either in new or know transiting systems, and I also work to understand some physical and atmospheric properties of known transiting systems. Finally I have started collaborating with the Binary group in the Institute, where I perform observations of the eclipses of Post Common Envelope Binaries (PCEBs) to understand the origin and nature of the variations observed in these systems
