Welcome! I am currently a FONDECYT postdoctoral fellow in the Instituto de Astrofísica at the Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile. My research is focused on merger-driven transformation of galaxies across a wide range of mass. I use observations (radio, mm/submm, infrared, and optical) in concert with N-body simulations to understand the interplay between star formation, active galactic nuclei, feedback, and the interstellar medium in mergers. This is leading to an improved understanding of the processes which drive extreme star formation and morphological changes in galaxies.

In addition to my research, this website has some information about my teaching, public outreach interests, and some biographical information.
