Marie-Curie Research Fellow

Niels Bohr Institute


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 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 compare the fraction of single O stars in Galactic stellar clusters (dashed line) with that found in populations of synthetic clusters constructed with various distributions functions on the IMF parameters. Broad distributions of the IMF parameters are required to fit the observations. To read more: Dib, Schmeja, Hony (2017)
