I am the leader of the Galaxy Formation and Evolution Group. My main research interests lie on the study of the physical processes leading to the formation and evolution of galaxies and galaxy systems, the influence of the environment on the properties of galaxies, the gravitational clustering of dark matter and baryons, and their cosmological implications.

The research carried out by the group is supported by the Dirección General de Investigacióndel Ministerio de Educación y Ciencia of Spain, under different grants.
The group is working on different projects, ranging from the analytical modeling of the growth of halo structure to the formation of the first stars and its implications on galaxy evolution. Here we present a brief description of our ongoing and recent work classified into two broad areas:

Gravitational clustering
  • Hierarchical clustering
  • Structure of dark matter halos
  • Global properties and structure of the hot gas within dark halos

Galaxy formation and evolution
  • Analytical modeling of galaxy formation
    • The formation of first stars and reionization
    • Luminosity function of Active Galactic Nuclei
    • Morphological evolution of galaxies
