I'm an assistant professor at Universidad Adolfo Ibáñez in Santiago de Chile.

I do research on exoplanets, the planets around other stars. I specialize in demographical studies of exoplanet populations, and connect these with numerical models of planet formation and observations of protoplanetary disks, to learn how planets form and evolve.
Previously I was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Chicago and the University of Arizona, and I got my PhD from the University of Amsterdam.
I'm also part of part of the EOS/Alien Earths team: Check out the Genesis database of planet formation models!
My library of publications can be found here, and I wrote a review chapter about the relations between exoplanets and their host star properties for the Handbook of Exoplanets.
I also co-advise graduate student Rachel Fernandes who discovered a break in the semi-major axis distribution of giant planets!
The code for the exoplanet population observation simulator epos can be found on github, with documentation.
