Supervisor: Victor Manuel Rivilla Rodríguez

Predoctoral researcher at the Doctoral programme on Astrophysics of the Universidad Complutense of Madrid. I graduated in from said university. I also did a master on Astrophysics there in 2020. My Master’s Dissertation was: Identifying chromospheric activity- and magnetically-sensitive spectral lines on M-stars visible and near-infrared range of CARMENES. Between the end of 2020 and the first half of 2021 I worked at the Universidad Complutense of Madrid, developing my master’s dissertation and making a scientific article (López-Gallifa et al., in prep).

Nowadays, I am A PhD student at the Centro de Astrobiología under the supervision of Víctor Manuel Rivilla Rodríguez. I am studying the molecular abundances in different sources of the interstellar medium (clusters of massive stars, comets …), and also, researching about correlations of the molecules between the sources. I mainly focus on molecules related with prebiotic chemistry for the study of the beginning of life and also, observing the dispersion of the molecules on the interstellar medium.
