One of the questions that remains about the formation and final evolution of stars concerns the role of magnetic fields. My research group focuses on the observations of magnetic fields and on the mass-loss, outflow and infall processes during high-mass star formation and during the final stages of stellar evolution (such as AGB, post-AGB stars and planetary nebulae). We mainly use instruments such as ALMA, SMA, eMERLIN, JVLA, LOFAR, APEX and VLBI.

My work is supported by an ERC consolidator grant, a VR grant and a Marie-Curie career integration grant.
