Research Summary

My research focuses on 

  • energy transfer processes in stellar structure and evolution (convection, radiation, conduction),
  • stellar populations kinematics, dynamics and theory of orbits,
  • dissipative and instability hydro-dynamical processes (Rayleigh–Taylor, Kelvin–Helmholtz, tidal influence,...)

with particular attention to the modelling of our Galaxy’s evolution within the context of the Gaia mission, to the environmental processes on dwarf galaxies of the Local Group and to the star-formation processes and energy-transfer processes (for sun and Supernovae).
