Astrophysicist researcher

studying the most powerful monsters in the Universe: Supermassive Black Holes

About me

Currently I am a ESO Mixto Post-Doc fellow at Nucleo de Astronomia of the Universidad Diego Portales in Santiago, Chile. I study the accretion properties of supermassive black holes in Active Galactic Nuclei using broad-band X-ray spectroscopy and timing analysis.

I moved to Santiago in 2019 when I won the FONDECYT Post-Doc Fellowship. Before moving to Santiago I worked on the X-ray polarimetry mission IXPE at the Institute of Astrophysics and Space Planetology INAF-IAPS in Rome, Italy. I got my PhD in Physics in 2018 at Roma Tre University working on the Comptonization mechanisms acting in the hot coronae of AGN.

I am part of the the Swift/BAT AGN Spectroscopic Survey (BASS) team, of the scientific working group of the hard X-ray NASA mission NuSTAR, of the science team of the new NASA polarimetry mission, IXPE and of the new ESA mission ATHENA X-Ray Observatory.
