I am an astrophysicist working as a postdoctoral researcher at the Leibniz-Institut fr Astrophysik Potsdam.

 

RESEARCH

During the PhD, I worked on modelling the kinematics and the dynamics of dwarf spheroidal galaxies galaxies, with Dr. Mark Wilkinson.

Kinematic populations

We used data of Canes Venatici I dwarf spheroidal galaxy obtained with GMOS-N spectrograph, and studied its stellar sub-populations. We made statistical significance tests for detections of the sub-populations in small data sets.

Modelling dSph dynamics

We used a Markov Chain Monte Carlo method in order to determine the the distribution of the good dynamical models of Carina dSph, in the parameter space.
