GALEV models on the web – www.galev.org

I’m responsibly for operating and maintaining the now official GALEV website that can be found at http://www.galev.org.
From this webpage you can download previously published models and data, and also run your own GALEV model interactively.

 

Research interests

  • Galaxy Formation and Evolution from the early universe until today
  • Stellar Populations in galaxies of different Hubble types and environments
  • Star Formation and its Feedback processes
  • Observation and modelling of Spectral Energy Distributions (SEDs) of galaxies and star clusters from
  • Ultraviolett to Infrared (U through K)
  • Star Formation in different environments from galaxy mergers to the very outskirts of spiral galaxies
  • Dust Absorption and Reemission in galaxies along the Hubble sequence, MIR to sub-mm modelling of galaxies
  • Galaxy Transformation Scenarios in galaxy clusters
  • Astronomical data processing and reduction, pipelines

 

Diploma thesis

Subject of my diploma thesis supervised by Prof. Kollatschny was

Multiwavelength study and optical spectroscopy of X-Ray selected Active Galactic Nuclei
