I graduated in Physical Sciences (with speciality in Astrophysics) from the University of La Laguna in 2010. Later, I started my PhD in University of Vigo, where I did a Master in Applied Physics. I developed my PhD between University of Vigo and Center for Astrobiology, in Madrid. The main topic of my PhD was the study of hot subdwarf stars as central stars of planetary nebulae. After defended my doctoral thesis in 2015, I continued my research career in Chile, with a Fondecyt postdoctoral fellowship, in University of Valparaíso. I was there until 2019, when I came back to the Center for Astrobiology as a postdoctoral researcher thanks to a “Atracción de Talento Investigador” contract of the Comunidad Autónoma de Madrid. My main reasearch topic is the study of the death of stars like our Sun, or stars of low and intermediate mass, which will end their lives in the form of planetary nebulae. Currently, I focus on the search for binary central stars of planetary nebulae, which is key to understand the complex and fascinating morphologies prensent in planetary nebulae. As a part of the Spanish Virtual Observatory (SVO), I develop part of my research using a VO methodology, making use of the available VO tools, as is the case of VOSA. I combine my scientific research with educational activities as the organization of VO schools.
