Research interests: 
interstellar Medium; photoionization models and spectroscopy observations; diffuse Ionized Gas in galaxies and the ionization source; protoplanetary Discs (Proplyds) in Orion Nebula, the ionization from Theta1C and Theta 2A stars; chemical abundances in photoionized nebulae.

Research Highlights: 

My research interests are focused on the understanding and modeling of the photoionization and heating of the gas in the interstellar medium. In particular, in the understanding of the chemical abundances anomalies in the photoionized nebulae, as well as in the determining the ionization and heating sources of Diffuse Ionized Gas (DIG)
