I work at INAOE (Instituto Nacional de Astrofisica, Optica y Electronica), located at Santa Maria Tonantzintla, Puebla, Mexico. My research fields are analysis of structure of galaxies, NIR photometry and N-Body simulations.

I was an undergraduate at UFRGS (Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul), in Porto Alegre, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, working with Horacio Dottori, in the Astronomy Department. I got my PhD thesis (Etude des structures des disques galactiques) at Observatoire de Marseille , France.
