Marie-Curie Research Fellow

Niels Bohr Institute

Centre for Star and Planet Formation


I am a theoretical astrophysicist working on various aspects of star formation in galaxies and the physics of the interstellar medium.

I am currently employed as a Marie-Curie Research fellow at the Niels Bohr Institute and I am also associated with the Centre for Star and Planet Formation, both of which are located in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Prior to that I have worked at Imperial College London, the CEA in Saclay, the Korea Astronomy and Space Science Institute, and the Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico. I did my research work  for my Ph.D at the Max-Planck Institute in Heidelberg and obtained my Ph.D degree from the University of Heidelberg.

Research highlights
We measure dust masses, and star formation rates of low-redshift galaxies using multi-wavelenght SED modelling with the code MAGPHYS. We discuss the origin of dust in red Early-type galaxies. Data points (squares) in the figure below come from Herschel, GAMA, WISE, & SDSS

ELSC14 Workshop

I organized the workshop "The Early Life of Stellar Clusters : Formation and Dynamics" (Copenhagen, Nov 3-7, 2014).
