Maria Camisassa

Dr. in Astrophysics


About me

I recieved my PhD in Astronomy at the University of La Plata, Argentina, thanks to La Plata Stellar Evolution and Pulsation Research Group. After that, I moved to the USA to become a Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of Colorado Boulder. Today I am a RyC Postdoctoral Researcher at the Polytechnic University of Catalonia in Barcelona, Spain.

Research Interests:

• Stellar evolution and pulsations

• Stellar energy sources

• Physical processes in stars

• White dwarf stars

• Stellar population synthesis studies

• 3D Magnetohydrodynamical models of convection

• Solar Physics

Stellar Models

Click here to get all the ultra-massive white dwarf evolutionary models in Sloan and Gaia passbands. We have models with H-rich and-H deficient envelopes, with oxygen-neon and carbon-oxygen cores, and several metallicities (²²Ne abundances).

Click here to get the NEW interpolated white dwarf evolutionary models in several passbands (Gaia, Sloan and more). We have models with H rich and H deffient envelopes and they are equispaced in masses
