Dr. Muñoz works on planet formation and planetary dynamics. He focuses on the hydrodynamical properties of planet-forming disks and how these are affected by environments of stellar multiplicity. He also works on exoplanets in extreme orbital configurations, such as hot Jupiters and circumbinary planets, studying their dynamical stability as well as their formation paths. Dr. Munoz uses different modeling methods, ranging from analytic techniques to state-of-the-art computational simulations. Other interests of his include Bayesian statistical methods, radio interferometry and black hole accretion.
Diego also holds an appointment as Assistant Professor at Universidad Adolfo Ibáñez (UAI) in Santiago, Chile.
