My bio

I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Instituto de AstrofĂ­sica de Canarias, located on the island of Tenerife (Spain). My current research interest is the evolution of galaxies in galaxy clusters. Galaxy clusters are the most massive collapsed structures in the Universe, containing hundreds to thousands galaxies, which makes them one of the largest astrophysical laboratories which I study with the aid of cosmological hydrodynamical simulations. I am a member of the Cluster-EAGLE collaboration, a state-of-the-art simulations suite that focuses on massive galaxy cluster at high resolution, where I am in charge of the computation of the synthetic spectra-photometric catalogue. I am leading a study on the diffuse emission of the hot gas that permeates the galaxies, observed with X-ray satellites such as Chandra and eRosita, and its relation with galaxy structures. I am also interested in numerical methods, parallel computing and data analysis, you can check out some of my codes in my GitHub page.
