About my research:  My main research projects are connected to the search and characterisation of very low mass stars and brown dwarfs in the solar neighborhood. Nearby objects generally have larger proper motions than more distant ones and I am searching for such high proper motion targets towards Galactic bulge and Galactic disk based on the VISTA-VVV survey. I am also involved  in near-IR spectroscopic and photometric follow up of new Y dwarfs candidates detected only in WISE W2 band.
