Research


Extrasolar Planets

        Rocky planets and super-Earths

        Habitable Zone

        Spectral Fingerprints of Exoplanets






I am fascinated by the search and characterization of planets outside our Solar System.

For the first time in Human history we have the technology to find and characterize not only continents but complete other worlds. And there is a lot to learn....
