LINES OF RESEARCH
My research spans in the following areas:

1. Data analysis:
A) designing and implementing of Evryscope pipeline,
B) wavelet-based analysis of light curves (AWLORP),
C) image fusion,
D) image deconvolution.

2. Instrumentation:
A) designing and building robotic telescopes (Evryscope and TFRM),
B) designing and implementing 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) surveying transiting exoplanets around nearby bright stars, bright M-dwarfs, and white dwarfs, taking advantage with Evryscope and/or TFRM.
B) high-angular resolution for new close binaries detection, stellar diameters, and circumstellar shells measurements by means of lunar occultations technique, as an application of 1.B and 2.B.
