- About me
I am currently a Ramón y Cajal Associate Professor (position founded after the Nobel Prize Winner) at the Astrophysics Department in the Universidad Complutense de Madrid (UCM). Previously, I was a postdoc at the UCM within ASTRID, a project supported by the Comunidad Autónoma de Madrid.
My research is focused on the study of the star formation in galaxies. This is also the main goal of the UCM Star Formation Group (SFG). There are two main aspects in this study: 1) analize extended nearby galaxies with resolved star-forming complexes to understand what triggers star formation in individual galaxies (see, e.g., Pérez-González et al. 2003 or Pérez-González et al. 2006); 2) characterize the population of star-forming galaxies at intermediate and high redshift to understand how galaxies formed and evolved from the beginning of the Universe (e.g., Pérez-González et al. 2005). These galaxies are detected with different techniques. I am especially interested in galaxies detected through their Hα emission or their dust emission in the infrared (IR).
I am a member of GUAIX, a group dedicated to software development for astronomical instruments. I am specially involved in the development of the reduction pipeline for the FRIDA instrument in the Gran Telescopio de Canarias (GTC).
