Me in a vineyard

I am Chilean astronomer doing research on exoplanetary science. Since 2020, I am a Research Fellow at Jesus college and hosted at the Institute of Astronomy, University of Cambridge.

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 ALMA (interferometric) observations and their comparison with radiative transfer models and numerical simulations.
