Research InterestsI am a computational astrophysicist doing research on galaxy formation and cosmology. My main interests in the last years have been modeling the Lyman-alpha emission in galaxies, understading the Local Group in a cosmological context and characterizing the cosmic web. I am also a member of the Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument (DESI) collaboration and the contact point in Colombia for the Latinamerican Chinese European Galaxy Formation Network (LACEGAL)
Research TeamYou can find here all the ongoing projects in the Computational Astrophysics team I lead at Los Andes University.
TeachingFollow all the computational courses we have made public on github. We have also posted some youtube videos (in Spanish) if you want to learn the basics of unix and python.
DevelopmentInterested in using Astronomy as a tool for development? Join us at the Andean Regional Office of Astronomy for Develoment.
