Research ProjectIf you are interested in a TP4b or Master project, don't hesitate to contact me. You can find below some examples of the projects proposed for the 2019 Spring. # Stellar mass estimates for a volume limited sample of galaxies around the Virgo cluster # Deconvolution of images for the next generation of cosmological imaging surveys # Algorithms to trace the Cosmic Web
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.

- Doctoral Program in Physics
Two of the most important problems in modern astrophyiscs and cosmology are (i) galaxy formation and their evolution with time and (ii) the study of the distribution and the nature of dark matter and dark energy in the Universe.
Le but du cours de Physique générale est de donner à l'étudiant les notions de base nécessaires à la compréhension des phénomènes physiques. L'objectif est atteint lorsque l'étudiant est capable de prévoir quantitativement les conséquences de ces phénomèn...
