My current interests are mainly focused on the formation of celestial objects, through studies of N-body + Hydro numerical simulations of these systems, using state-of-the-art codes (GADGET, ENZO, RAMSES, NBODY6, etc). The problems studied include black hole seed formation by cloud collapse and uncontrolled stellar collisions, cosmological growth and evolution by massive black hole mergers and/or gas accretion, star formation laws in galaxies and cluster formation in galactic mergers.
