Discovering the Universe—what else?! I have a weak spot for informatics and space astrometry. I like to do them and use them to discover and study probes of Gravity and the Universe on multiple scales, such as quasar gravitational lenses, galaxies, and stellar clusters.

I express myself more naturally by constructing new methods (e.g., UPMASK, GraL lens searchGaia's extended object processing) as well as software systems (e.g., the ESA/Gaia Archive Visualization Service). I usually "think together" with methods constructed on top of supervised and unsupervised machine/statistical learning methods to make new discoveries (e.g. lenses, stellar clusters).

Finally, since 2006, I have dedicated a large fraction of my research time to building the ESA/Gaia space mission and its data releases, to planning the future of space astrometry (e.g., Theia, Gaia?NIR, Toliman), and crafting a multidisciplinary community through COIN, IAA, and IAIA.
