Click here to get an updated version of my CV.
I am an Associate Professor of Astrophysics (Maitre de Conférences) at the Paris Observatory and the University of Paris and Adjunct Professor at the University of California Santa Cruz. Since 2015 I am also member of the Institut Universitaire de France. I am currently spending 3 years at the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias funded by an Excellence Research Grant.
I try to understand how galaxies form and evolve. Some questions I try to answer are: Why some galaxies keep forming stars while others just die (quench)? How is this related to the galaxy structure/morphology?
Astronomy is experiencing a true revolution with the emergence of huge photometric and spectroscopic surveys. My research is at the heart of this transition to the big-data era. I work both in analyzing data and in developing new and innovative tools based on deep learning to deal with massive datasets from current and future space and ground-based facilities.
