Me at Jesus

I am Chilean astronomer doing research on exoplanetary science. Since 2023, I am a Senior Research Fellow at the University of Exeter, supported with a University Research Fellowship by Royal Society.

I am interested in Planet formation and the architecture and dynamics of planetary systems. How do comets and planets form? Where do cometary belts form? What is the composition of exocomets? Can they deliver volatiles to terrestrial planets? My research tackles these questions through the use of JWST and ALMA observations and their comparison with radiative transfer models and numerical simulations.
