My primary research area lies in observational astronomy, with a focus on multi-object- spectroscopy.

I am currently in the planning stages of a twilight survey utilizing the WEAVE spectrograph on La Palma. This survey aims to create an extensive metallicity catalogue of bright FGK stars that will also be observed during the upcoming PLATO mission. The resulting dataset will facilitate a better understanding of correlations between the elemental abundances of exoplanets and their host stars.
