I am an experimental physicist working with nonlinear optics in several platforms (integrated waveguides, optical fibers, etc) and with various materials (silica, silicon nitride, silicon, etc). My main scientific interest is the development of stabilized optical frequency combs for calibration of astronomical spectrographs. I also enjoy dancing salsa, travelling and watching documentaries.
