Research interests

The main questions driving my research can be summarised with the following themes, that are all intertwined with one another in my scientific work.

(i) Galaxy formation and evolution: unveiling the physical processes behind the formation and evolution of galaxies in the cosmos, starting from the Milky Way and its dwarf spheroidal galaxy satellites to the population of galaxies in the Local Universe and at higher redshifts.

(ii) Chemical evolution: studying the origin of the observed chemical abundances in the stars and interstellar medium of galaxies.

(iii) Stellar nucleosynthesis: shedding light on the nucleosynthesis of chemical elements.

(iv) Stellar evolution.

In my research studies, I like to adopt and develop continuously different methods, tools, and mathematical/numerical formalisms with my collaborators to have a physical model that can explain what we observe in the Milky Way and extragalactic systems.
