Background

I defended my PhD in Astronomy at Paris Observatory in 2002, before being invited 6 months at ESO HQs in Garching to work on the cosmological GOODS project. Then I went to Michigan State University for 2 years, as a research associate, to study extragalactic globular cluster systems with Pr. S. Zepf. I've been working as an AMIGA postdoc at IAA since November 2004, the first 18 months being supported by a MEC fellowship, and since May 2006 under an I3P contract. I am working on the optical part of the project: morphologies, Hα survey and star cluster systems of isolated galaxies
