About Me

I am a first year PhD student, working on interferometric imaging for radio astronomy under the supervision of Jean-Luc Starck and Samuel Farrens.

Research Interests

The goal of my PhD is to develop radio image reconstruction tools allowing for fast and robust analysis of the SKA-scale radio data.
In the current era of multi-messenger astronomy radio imaging arises as a complementary probe of the late-time Universe that has not been fully explored.
The ARGOS project consists on a leading-edge, low-cost, European based radio telescope that will allow to address fundamental scientific questions such as the nature of dark matter and the origin of Fast Radio Bursts. Radio imaging is able to probe in higher redshifts while being less sensitive to PSF anisotropies.
ARGOS will provide with science-ready data and events alerts in real time. For that matter, cutting-edge efficient data processing methods must be developed to be able to manage this huge amount of interferometric data.


In 2020 I have got the Eiffel Excellence Scholarship from the French gouvernement to continue my engineering degree in France in the context of a double degree between the University of Buenos Aires and the engineering school IMT Atlantique.
In parallel to my engineering degree I followed a Master on signal and image processing (SISEA) co-accredited with the University of Rennes ans CentraleSupélec.
