Research

My main research is studying how the gas is converted into stars in nearby galaxies and how this affects galaxy evolution. I lead  the “HI KOALA IFS Dwarf galaxy Survey” (Hi-KIDS) program, that uses the KOALA+AAOmega instruments at the 3.9m Anglo-Australian Telescope (AAT) to obtain integral-field spectroscopy (IFS) data of a sample of 80 gas-rich nearby dwarf galaxies. I’m also the Instrument Scientist of KOALA at the AAT, and for that I’m developing scripts and pipelines to observe, reduce and analyse these IFS data. I also provide support for visiting astronomers to the AAT. I am an active member in large optical and radio galaxy surveys (GAMA, CALIFA, SAMI, HECTOR, WALLABY, EMU, among others).

Since 2004 I have published 166 refereed publications generating over 11,000 citations (SAO/NASA Astrophysics Data System). My h-index is 59 and my m-index is 3.1. (Updated: August 2022).

A complete list of my scientific papers can be found following this link to the NASA Astrophysics Data System (NASA/ADS).  The majority of these papers are also available in the arXiv / astro-ph archives. My Google Scholar webpage also has more information about my research papers. My ORCID ID is 0000-0001-8083-8046

Below I compile the posts I’ve written on my webpage about my research, usually  discussing the refereed papers I’ve published in scientific journals. I still have plenty of work to do, as almost all of them were in my old website, and I’m slowly including them here.

There are some few more posts discussing some of the research I do under the category “my research“.
