Welcome!
Currently I am working as an astrophysicist, after moving to the other side of the planet, in the beautiful city of Valparaiso in Chile.

This website serves practically as a personal (collective) online log/notebook about my whereabouts in Astronomy, occupying most of my everyday(/night) life. However, starting around the beginning of 2017, I decided to include (with time) some more stuff from other activities (I am not just an astrophysicist! ūüôā ).

Feel free to tour around and you may find something interesting or useful perhaps, if not … what the frak … nobody is perfect!

Since January 2017, I am based at the Institute for Physics and Astronomy, of the University of Valaparaiso, Chile, working on massive stars with Michel Curé

Previously, I spend 2.5 years as a post-doc researcher at Stellar Physics Department of the Astronomical Institute of the Czech Academy of Sciences. I worked with Michaela Kraus on massive stars and, in particular, how they lose mass in specific evolutionary phases (such as yellow hypergiants, B[e] supergiants, luminous blue variables) and form their environment.

I obtained my PhD in September 2014 from the Physics Department of the University of Crete (Heraklion, Greece) under the guidance of Andreas Zezas, working on High-Mass X-ray Binaries in the Small Magellanic Cloud and our Galaxy.

Interests
> My research is in Observational Astrophysics, with focus on massive stars, x-ray binaries, variable stars, stellar populations in different environments, exoplanets
> Other interests include Professional-Amateur networking and collaborations, and Openness in Astronomy.
