Research Interests

My research interests span from exoplanets to stars. In the exoplanet field my research concentrates mostly on the observational and theoretical study of planet atmospheric escape and of the star-planet interaction phenomenon. My research covers also the characterisation of planetary atmospheres. In the stellar field my research interests cover the photometric and spectroscopic characterisation of stellar atmospheres, the study of stellar evolution, and the detection of magnetic fields for stars across the whole Hertzsprung-Russell diagram.
