Líneas de Investigación


Over the past three years I focused on the study of galaxy formation and evolution, in particular characterizing how the interstellar medium of galaxies evolve across cosmic time.

Formación de Capital Humano


During the two years I've been a Professor at Universidad de Concepción (UdeC), I have supervised five undergraduate students and three master students. With the start of my Partner Group between the Max Planck and Udec I plan to expand this number. In that sense the additional funds from BASAL will be key to add PhD students and postdoctoral researchers to our research group.
