Ph. D., Astrophysics, Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias, 2012

My work involves developing new instrumentation and software for telescopes, especially for the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) for which I’m the software lead. I’m also interested in all thing’s galaxy-related, mainly star formation at different scales and its quenching, gas in galaxies, and feedback processes. I’m a part of the MaNGA team that has obtained optical integral field spectroscopy of over 10,000 galaxies.
