My main research interests focus on the observation and study of supernovae of the different kinds, thermonuclear or core-collapse, nearby or far away, known or predicted.  I work as well on their use as cosmological probes, and on harnessing of modern computational capabilities to extract knowledge in the nascent field of synoptic surveys.


Recently I’ve been expanding my interests and have worked on the subject of cosmic dust and the interstellar medium, with a focus on developing tools to correct for the effect of dust on cosmological and astrophysical observations.
