Héctor Martínez Rodríguez

Welcome! My name is Héctor Martínez Rodríguez. I am a Ph.D. student in astrophysics at the University of Pittsburgh since 2014. My advisor is Carles Badenes. Our goal is to shed some light over the Type Ia supernova progenitor problem by comparing theoretical models from the stellar evolution code MESA and spectral data from supernova remnants acquired by the Japanese satellite Suzaku.

Before that, I got a masters's degree in astrophysics at the Complutense University of Madrid under the supervision of David Montes Gutiérrez and José Antonio Caballero Hernández. We were working in CARMENCITA, a research group in the context of CARMENES, a project devoted to search for exoplanets.

Here you can find all my publications in ADS and this is my CV.
