I'm a Principal Research Fellow at the Astronomy Group, School of Physics and Astronomy, University of Southampton. I joined the Astro-family in 2013, after I was awarded the University Research Fellowship of the Royal Society. My research focuses on the different manifestations of accretion onto compact objects. However, I am also very interested in other subjects, such as the use of time-series in non-astrophysical research.

In addition to my research, I spend a significant amount of time doing Public Engagement with Research. Among the many activities I have done recently, I have organized the first Astro-Art-Black-Hole competition (#astroarteagujero), a competition where people learned about black holes research and expressed their interpretations via their art. You can see more of it in the following page:
