In her PhD dissertation, Montserrat Armas Padilla focuses on the study of very faint X-ray binaries (VFXBs), which are a subgroup of X-ray binaries that display maximum luminosities several orders of magnitude lower than the ordinary well-studied X-ray binaries. She also analyses the only known VFXB harbouring a confirmed Black Hole (BH) accretor, namely Swift J1357.2-0933.
