ICCUB Seminar – Supermassive black holes as the regulators of star formation in central galaxies
DAM seminar room (724), 7th floor
Studies have shown that feedback from supermassive black holes have profound effects on the gaseous atmospheres of massive galaxies. The consequences of these effects result in dramatic changes with respect to how the baryon cycle works and whether or not new stars are able form from within these galaxies.

ICCUB Seminar – An interferometric journey around massive stars: a decade of amazing results
DAM seminar room (724), 7th floor
Since the construction of modern facilities such as VLTI and CHARA, interferometry has become a key technique to probe massive stars and their often-complex circumstellar environments. In this seminar, I will briefly introduce the basics of this technique and its application to astrophysics.

ICCUB Seminar – The First Axionic Dark Matter Simulations for the “no-WIMP Era”
Seminar Room 724 (Facultat de Física)
I will describe cosmological simulations of Axion-like Dark Matter, motivated by string theory, providing a well motivated cold dark matter alternative to the standard heavy particle interpretation. Standing waves and other interference effects are predicted within Galaxies that we test with QSO lensing, pulsar timing and via dynamical effects.
