Welcome to my website
I am a Venezuelan astronomer based in Chile. I currently work at ESO as a Fellow. My work at ESO is split between independent research, and duties as support astronomer at the Very Large Telescope, in Paranal Observatory.
Although I'm interested in a broad range of topics, the bulk of my research focuses on understanding the formation and evolution of galaxies as a function of cosmic time and environment (see my research and project pages).
