laureIn the framework of galaxies evolution, I characterize the star formation activity as a function of mass, environment, and nuclear activity.
To do so, I use the spectral energy distributions fitting method for which I acquired an expertise by applying it on different objects: normal local galaxies, high redshift mergers, AGN host galaxies, etc.
Through this method, I characterize the dust emission, proxy for star formation, on a wide redshift range, but also study star formation history of galaxies by studying their UV-optical emission.
