About my research: My main research area focuses on Be and  B[e] stars. I mainly use VLTI the infrared interferometer located in the north of Chile. Interferometry is a unique technique that allows us to reach high angular resolution. Using this technique we are able not onlu to measure the size, but also the kinematics of celestial objects. Moreover I use different radiative transfer codes to analyse the observational data  (SIMECA, MC3D, HDUST).

Teaching: Astrostatistics, IDL, Interferometry
