Welcome to my website!



















My main work focuses on understanding the physical nature of the regions around supermassive black holes in active galactic nuclei, specifically their accretion disks, broad-line regions and dust distributions. I use observations obtained from the X-ray through the UV and optical, and up to infrared energies. My research also focuses in the star formation field where I am interested on understanding the physical proceses that lead to the formation of high-mass stars and the variability of young stellar objects.
