Short Bio

I am an Associate Professor in Astronomy and Astrophysics at the Department of Modern Physics, University of Cantabria.

I was born in Bern, Switzerland 4th January 1980 where I grew up until 1994 when I moved with my family to Santander.

I attained my PhD in the Institute of Physics of Cantabria (IFCA) in 2007. The topic of my PhD thesis was the study of the isotropy and Gaussianity of the Cosmic Microwave Background anisotropies.

After that, I worked as a Postdoctoral researcher being member of the Core Team of the ESA Planck satellite mission, until 2008, when I joined the department of Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science of the University of Cantabria. In 2023 I moved to my current department.

Research Interests

My current research interests are focused on data analysis in Cosmology. In the past years I have also worked on image analysis, statistical methods, stereology, sampling, and their applications to ecology, biomedicine, pharmacology, etc.
