Research Interests

My research focuses on the origin and evolution of stellar systems in the Milky Way and Local Group galaxies using muti-object multi-wavelength massive stellar spectroscopic surveys. I also study compact binary evolution and the variety of phenomena where they play significant roles, from the creation of a diverse taxonomy of variable stars to the production of sources of gravitational waves and cosmological standard candles.
