I currently work on:

1) assembly and analysis of multi-wavelength data from the CANDELS survey, in particular the CANDELS+HUGS survey of the GOODS-South field;

2) simulation of future EUCLID dataset combining space-based and ground-based imaging, evaluation of different algorithms (aperture photometry on PSF-homogenized dataset, PSF-matched photometry) for the creation of uniform multi-band catalogs.

3) study of early galaxy evolution: dust extinction in high redshift LBGs and the impact on SFRD estimates, properties of galaxies during the epoch of reionization.
