I'm currently working as a postdoc at the Relativistic Astrophysics and Radio-astronomy Group (GARRA) in the IAR, mainly with Dr Jorge A. Combi, and at the X-ray binaries Group in the University of Southampton, UK, mainly with Dr Diego Altamirano. My research interests focus around the study of X-ray binaries, seeking to understand the physical processes that drive these systems and to understand how the observed diversity in this population is produced. Currently, I'm studying low-mass X-ray binaries that show reflaring events after the main outburst, trying to understand what generates them and how they relate to the general accretion process.
