About me

I am a PhD candidate in the Galaxy group of the Astronomy department.
My goal is to give a contribution to the understanding of the structure and the evolution of the galaxies in our Universe.

My supervisor is Angela Adamo, an experienced researcher who has obtained a copius amount of new astronomical data from Hubble Space Telescope and Very Large Telescope in Chile. We will analyse these images of nearby galaxies to study star-formation and to understand how the young stars affect the interstellar medium around them with strong winds.

I am also interested in supermassive black holes, in the centre of some galaxies, which can generate outflows and suppress star-formation.
