Background

I graduated in 2012 in physics from the University of Granada. After that I moved to Tenerife where I obtained a master's degree in computational and theoretical astrophysics between 2012 and 2014. I then obtained a summer fellowship in cosmology to work at CEFCA in Teruel. Finally, I returned to Tenerife to work on my PhD between 2015 and 2019 under the supervision of Ignacio Trujillo. My PhD research focused on the study of the  low surface brightness Universe such as low surface-brightness galaxies, galactic stellar halos, galactic cirri or PSF characterization in optical data. I had an active participation in the IAC Stripe82 Legacy Survey, in which I continue to be involved, and I developed numerous general and specific optical data processing pipelines for different astronomical facilities.

Since 2019 I am working in the AMIGA project under the direction of Lourdes Verdes-Montenegro.
