Research overview

I work on star formation and protoplanetary disk evolution from an observational point of view. I use multiwavelength observations (from optical to millimetre, from ground-based telescopes to space-borne observations) to study the way protoplanetary disk evolve and disperse with time, trying to understand the physical mechanisms behind disk dispersal and what makes that different systems evolve along different paths. I am also interested in the connections between disk structure and evolution and cluster environment, and how initial conditions in the star-forming cloud may affect disks and their final outcome (maybe a planetary system?), and on making real-time stellar experiments using observations of variable, young stars.
