I am a member of the Chandra High Energy Transmission Grating
Spectrometer (HETG) group. My research focuses on the study of hot (T>1 MK)
coronal structures in stars of different activity levels. I study the characteristics
of stellar coronae mainly through the analysis of high-resolution X-ray spectra,
and numerical models of plasma structures as diagnostic tools to gain insight into
the physical processes ruling the outer stellar atmospheres.
