Background

I got my B.Sc in Physics at the Complutense University of Madrid (UCM) in 2011. My Dissertation dealt with the sky brightness and extinction coefficients of the sky of Madrid using AstMon instrument. Also, I got a M.Sc. in Astrophysics at the UCM and Autonomous University of Madrid (UAM) in 2012. For my Master Thesis I studied the quiescent and active states of Sgr A* in X-rays at ESAC-ESA (European Space Astronomy Center, European Space Agency) using ESA's XMM-Newton Observatory data.

On November 2012, I was awarded a FPI fellowship by the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness of Spain to join AMIGA group at the IAA and work on my Ph.D. Thesis. It involves the study of different isolated galaxies from AMIGA sample by using radio and optical observations of several observatories.
