Niels Bohr Institute
Marie-Curie Research Fellow
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.
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 (2016)
I organized the workshop "The Early Life of Stellar Clusters : Formation and Dynamics" (Copenhagen, Nov 3-7, 2014).
