My main research areas are molecular spectroscopy, dust mineralogy in evolved stars and the Diffuse Interstellar Bands (DIBs). Most research is based on observations with ground-based or space-borne telescopes, but generally includes some theoretical work or a comparison with theoretical models as well.
