Dr. Jesper Storm

The main topic for my research is the calibration of the extra-galactic distance scale. In particular I study Cepheid stars which are very bright pulsating stars which can be used as standard candles to determine distances to distant galaxies. These stars can be studied in detail in our Milky Way and in our next door neighboring galaxies, the Magellanic Clouds where I apply a Baade-Wesselink type technique to determine precise distances to such stars. Related to this research I also study RR Lyrae stars and eclipsing binary stars in the Milky Way and in the Magellanic Clouds. I am participating in the 4MOST survey to further these goals among other things.

I received my Ph.D. from the Univ. of Copenhagen in 1992 and worked at the European Southern Observatory in Chile for six years before coming to the AIP in 1997.
