For the first time ever astronomers have studied an asteroid that has entered the Solar System from interstellar space. Observations from ESO's Very Large Telescope in Chile and other observatories around the world show that this unique object was traveling through space for millions of years before its chance encounter with our star system. It appears to be a dark, reddish, highly-elongated rocky or high-metal-content object. The new results appear in the journal Nature on 20 November 2017. ...

Twice as big as Earth, the super-Earth 55 Cancri e was thought to have lava flows on its surface. The planet is so close to its star, the same side of the planet always faces the star, such that the planet has permanent day and night sides. Based on a 2016 study using data from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope, scientists speculated that lava would flow freely in lakes on the starlit side and become hardened on the face of perpetual darkness. The lava on the dayside would reflect radiation from th...

Landing on Mars is difficult and not always successful. Well-designed advance testing helps. An ambitious NASA Mars rover mission set to launch in 2020 will rely on a special parachute to slow the spacecraft down as it enters the Martian atmosphere at over 12,000 mph (5.4 kilometers per second). Preparations for this mission have provided, for the first time, dramatic video of the parachute opening at supersonic speed. The Mars 2020 mission will seek signs of ancient Martian life by investiga...

A temperate Earth-sized planet has been discovered only 11 light-years from the Solar System by a team using ESO's unique planet-hunting HARPS instrument. The new world has the designation Ross 128 b and is now the second-closest temperate planet to be detected after Proxima b. It is also the closest planet to be discovered orbiting an inactive red dwarf star, which may increase the likelihood that this planet could potentially sustain life. Ross 128 b will be a prime target for ESO's Extremely ...

What seemed at first like a rare instance of a huge, ancient galaxy revealed itself to be an even rarer pair of extremely massive galaxies, seen on the brink of merging when the Universe was only a billion years old. This outstanding source was first identified by ESA's Herschel space observatory, and later exposed in greater detail with the ground-based Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) in Chile. The earliest galaxies in the 13.8 billion-year history of our cosmos starte...

    CV
    SUMMARY:
     
    My prime interests are detectors and astronomy instrumentation for space application. In the years that I have worked in engineering and research, I have built a strong background in electronic instrumentation from DC to microwave frequency. I'm interested in innovative ideas on physics and microwave circuitry. I have knowledge in the design and calibration, as well as extensive experience using vector network analyzers, spectrum analyzers, lock-in amplifiers and signal generators, for the characterization of different kind of sensors.

    I have also worked with different cryogenic techniques (He-3, He-4 continuous flow and closed cycle cryostats). Most recently, I'm developing a new cryogenic system for cosmology down to 100mK, where it is required adiabatic demagnetization refrigerator (ADR).

    So, I would like to summarize that I have worked in a variety of projects and technology areas (e.g. space detection, wireless applications, magnetic sensors, instrumentation, etc.), which allowed me to have a strong background in new technologies at theoretical and practical level.
