First generations of stars in the Universe
Pascale Jablonka is a French/Swiss astrophysicist who specializes in the area of galaxy evolution. She earned a doctorate in astrophysics from the University Paris 7- Denis Diderot in France. She then held a postdoctoral fellowship at the Headquarter of the European Southern Observatory (ESO, Germany), before obtaining a position at CNRS (France). She is currently Directrice de Recherche at CNRS and on leave of absence from Paris Observatory in the Laboratoire d'astrophysique of EPFL.
Pascale Jablonka conducts both observations and numerical simulations to gain insights into the formation and evolution of galaxies. Her research focuses on three main topics :
> Understanding the nature of the first stars in the Universe
> Infering the driving parameters of the galaxy star formation histories
> Deciphering the impact of the environment on galaxy evolution.
Her research exploits ground-based and space telescopes as well as high performance computing facilities.
