Research interests:
I dedicate my scientific career to the study of planets outside our Solar System, with a focus on transiting exoplanets, their diversity and composition. I have been contributing to both, planet discovery via transit surveys, and the study of planetary atmospheres with modern telescope facilities, most prominently the ESO/VLT.
