About me

I am an Italian and Brazilian astrophysicist currently working at the Instituto de Astrofísica de Andalucía (Granada, Spain).

I am primarily interested in the characterisation of giant exoplanets, from their formation till the last moments of their planetary system life.

UPCOMING conferences

"Future instruments to detect and characterise extrasolar planets and their environment".

EPSC 2022 - Granada (18-23 September 2022)

Exoplanets are being discovered in large numbers thanks to recent and ongoing surveys using state-of-the-art instrumentation from the ground and from space. In the next years, new astronomical instruments will further scout our Galaxy to overcome the current observational biases in the search of alien worlds, to gain a deeper understanding of the chemical and physical properties of both exoplanets and their environments, and to unveil the processes of formation and evolution of planets and their atmospheres. The goal of this session is to bring together the instrumentation and observational communities that are underpinning the future of the exoplanet field.

With many more space- and ground-based Observatories the future of exoplanets is bright ! These "eyes-on-the-sky" will help us to know to pin down the true nature of planets outside the Solar System and to shed light on the formation and evolution of such exotic celestial objects !
