I obtained my B.S. degree in Physics & Astrophysics at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid (UCM) in 1995. I did my Ph.D. at the Astrophysics Department of the same university between 1996-2000 under the supervision of Dr. Jaime Zamorano. Between 2000-2002 I was a JPL Postdoctoral scholar at IPAC working with Dr. Barry F. Madore. Between 2002-2005 I worked as a research associate at the Observatories of the Carnegie Institution of Washington for the GALEX mission. For two years (2006-2007) I enjoyed a Marie Curie Experienced Researcher contract as a postdoc of the MAGPOP (Multi-wavelength Analysis of Galaxy POPulations) European Network at the Astrophysics Department of the Universidad Complutense de Madrid (UCM). Currently I am a Ramón y Cajal Associate Professor at the same university where I am part of the Group of Extragalactic Astrophysics and Astronomical Instrumentation (GUAIX: Grupo UCM de Astrofísica Extragaláctica e Instrumentación Astronómica).

Research interests

I am mainly interested in Extragalactic Astronomy. My work have been mainly focused in the multiwavelength study of the stellar populations of local star-forming galaxies: from nearby grand-design spirals, to the more active UCM-Survey galaxies, finishing with the actively star-forming Blue Compact Dwarfs. See below for the description of the projects I am currently involved.
