Welcome to my webpage

  I am a member of the science staff of the Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics (MPE) at the Optical and Interpretative Astronomy (Opinas) group.  I obtained my PhD in Astronomy at the Faculty of Mathematics, Astronmy and Physics (FaMAF) of the National University of Cordoba (UNC), Argentina, working at the Institute of Theoretical and Experimental Astronomy (IATE), where I had a doctoral fellowship from  CONICET.

  My research interests are Cosmology and the analysis of the Large Scale structure of the Universe. Among other projects, I am involved in the Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey (BOSS), which is a part of SDSS III designed to tackle the problem of Dark Energy by providing accurate measurements of the Baryonic Acoustic Oscillations (BAO). I am also involved in some of the most ambitious future galaxy surveys, the Hobby-Eberly Telescope Dark Energy Experiment (HETDEX) and the Euclid mission.

   As part of my Habilitation at the Ludwig Maximilians University, I am giving lectures on the "Formation and Evolution of Cosmic Structures". You can find my lecture notes and the problems sheets of the tutorials here.

   In this web page you can find my CV, a description of my research and links to my publications.
