I work running numerical simulations of diverse astrophysical phenomena such as formation of the first black holes in the Universe, star formation in isolated disk galaxies, and gas fragmentation during mergers.
Collection of projects I've done either as part of a class I've taken or in my free time.
I am a sixth year grad student at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics at Harvard University. I run and analyze numerical simulations of the formation of objects in the early Universe. In particular, I'm interested in figuring out how the first supermassive black holes formed when the Universe was young. I work under the supervision of Lars Hernquist and Volker Bromm. In the past I also collaborated with Thomas Greif while he was a postdoc at the CfA.
Before starting my PhD I got a Masters and a Bachelor degree at the Department of Astronomy at Universidad de Chile. My Master thesis focused on the study of the interstellar medium and star formation in simulations of local isolated galaxies under the supervision of Andres Escala.
