Jesus Maldonado – INAF OAPA

Jesus Maldonado got his degree in Physics in June 2005 at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid and his PhD degree in Astrophysics and Cosmology in 2012 at the Universidad Autonoma de Madrid where he worked as an assistant fellow, a PhD fellow, and as assistant teacher. After then, he got a postdoctoral position at INAF-Osservatorio astronomico di Palermo, where he obtained a full-time, staff position in October 2018. His main research topic is the relationship between the properties of the stars and the diversity of planetary systems. Specifically, he has studied how the different outputs of the planet formation processes (from planetesimals to brown dwarfs) depend on the mass, metallicity, and chemical abundances of the host stars. He is an active member of several international projects such as the Herschel-DUNES (Dust Around Nearby Stars Project), The Global Architecture of Planetary Systems (GAPS) and The HArps-n red Dwarf Exoplanet Survey (HADES).
