Areas of Specialty

Star formation, circumstellar disks, mid-infrared instrumentation, near-infrared and mid-infrared imaging and spectroscopy.

Research Interests

My main area of research is star and planetary system formation. I used mid-infrared and near-infrared imaging and spectroscopy to study young stars and the dusty disks that surround them.


I was born in Havana, Cuba. Growing up my interests were split between literature and physics and I went to Havana University to study philology. In 1992, I came to the US with my family. After learning English, I came to UF to study physics and math and graduated in 1999. After a summer internship at the CFA, I decided to continue graduate studies in astronomy and obtained a PhD. from UF in May 2007.
