I am an astrophysicist from CNRS working at the Institut de Planétologie et d’Astrophysique de Grenoble (IPAG) in France.
I succinctly present all my activities on the Loop research network. And encourage you to submit your papers to Frontiers journals, especially the Frontiers in Astronomy and Space Science, Milky Way and Galaxies for which I an Associate Editor.
Diversification of galaxies is my main research activity since September 2001. The goal is to depict the galaxy diversity that appeared during the history of the Universe, by using phylogenetic approaches borrowed from the evolutionary biology, in particular Maximum Parsimony (or cladistics). This incorporates domains like bioinformatics, statistics, mathematics, and the concepts of evolution as large. I have also applied this methodology on other astrophysical entities like stars or globular clusters.
