Welcome to my Web Page

I am a Level III (Senior) ESA/AURA Astronomer at the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, MD, U.S.A.

I also hold an appointment as Associate Research Scientist in the Physics and Astronomy Department of the Johns Hopkins University.

My work time is equally divided into a functional part and a research part. On the functional side, I work for the Hubble Space Telescope and I am a member of the ACS (Advanced Camera for Surveys) Team.

My scientific interests are mainly focused on Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN) and supermassive black holes.

News and Highlights

Our latest work on the gravitational wave recoiling black hole candidate 3C 186 was published in the Astrophysical Journal. Here's a link to the ADS webpage for this paper. Here's a link to the NASA-HUBBLE press release that was issued after the discovery was announced in 2017.
