About me



I am an astronomer currently working at the SIM Lab at FEUP, the Faculty for Engineering at University of Porto, in Porto, Portugal. I study star formation in massive clusters, young cluster complexes, and star forming molecular clouds, making use of state-of-the-art observations and statistical tools.

I also do research on tools for photometry and astrometry in adaptive optics images. Adaptive optics is the technology that will allow the E-ELT to work at its full potential. The E-ELT is ESO's next big project: a 39-m telescope in the southern hemisphere. Exciting times to be an astronomer!
