My research work is essentially related to the X-ray emission from young stars placed in different Galactic Star-Forming Regions (SFRs). More specifically, using observations of the XMM-Newton and Chandra X-ray satellites, I've addressed different problems of modern astrophysics:
  1. The origin of X-rays in young O-type stars and/or O+OB binary systems
  2. X-ray emission and variability characteristics of Pre Main-Sequence (PMS) low-mass stars.
  3. Diffuse X-ray emission in massive star-forming regions
  4. X-ray diffuse emission around evolved massive stars
  5. Gamma-ray emission in low-mass young stars
  6. Supernova Remnants in X-rays
  7. Unveiling hard diffuse emission around pulsars and its association as Pulsar Wind Nebulae
  8. Cross-correlations in multi-wavelengths databases
The different approaches in my researches pursuit to improve the knowledge of astrophysical scenarios, galactic, and/or extra-galactic.
