Stellar spectroscopist. Spectroscopic analysis of cool stars: spectral classification, stellar parameters, abundances, radial and rotational velocity determinations, Li abundance, and analysis of the optical chromospheric activity indicators.

Interested in different kind of cool stars including pre-main sequence stars, members of young open clusters, single young rapid rotators, flare stars and chromospherically active binaries.

Libraries of high and mid-resolution optical spectra of late-type stars (F, G, K and M field stars, from dwarfs to giants).

Spectroscopic characterization of late-type stars members of young stellar kinematic groups (moving groups) and nearby young associations. Chemical tagging.

Magnetic activity, stellar activity, chromosphere, corona.

Solar-type stars, solar analogs, solar twins, cool stars, low-mass stars, substellar objets, brown dwarfs, extra solar planets, exoplanets, exoearths.

M dwarfs.
