Background

I carried out my PhD from 2006 to 2010 at the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias under the direction of Dr. Jordi Cepa Nogué. The topic of my thesis was the study of fundamental relations of galaxies. During my PhD I have analysed photometric and spectroscopic data of galaxies at different redshifts, in order to study the evolution of the main parameters involved in the Tully-Fisher relation and in the Fundamental Plane, and the methods used for determining them.

At present I have a postdoctoral position at the Instituto de Astrofísica de Andalucía. My work is focused on the optical analysis of the AMIGA sample of isolated galaxies using SDSS.
