LINES OF RESEARCH
My research spans the following areas:

1. Astronomical and Remote Sensing 1D and 2D Data Analysis:
A) design and implementation of Evryscope reduction pipeline,
B) wavelet-based analysis of light curves (AWLORP algorithm),
C) image fusion using wavelets,
D) image deconvolution using wavelets.

2. Instrumentation:
A) design and construction of robotic telescopes (Evryscope and TFRM),
B) design and implementation of new high-speed reading modes for CCD and NIR imagers (OAN 1.5m/MAGIC, CAHA 2.2m/MAGIC and VLT/ISAAC).

3. Science:

A) survey of transiting exoplanets orbiting M-dwarfs, white dwarfs, hot subdwarfs, flares of active stars, and all sort of transients (CVs, Novas, SNs, GRBs, FRBs, GWs/EWs) with Evryscope and TFRM.
B) Submilliarcsecond resolution of infrared stellar features: measurement of stellar diameters, detection of new components in very close binaries systems, circumstellar envelopes, by means of high time resolution lunar occultations technique..
