FAPESP-Grant for Luisa Maria Gomes Buzzo


Research on the galaxy NGC1487.

We warmly welcome Luisa Maria Gomes Buzzo, a student from Universidad de Sao Paulo (Brasil). Thanks to a grant by FAPESP she will work in the group of Prof. Ziegler from 1 April to 31 July, 2019. Her research will focus on the galaxy NGC1487, which actually is an interacting system with two galaxies in the process of merging. Exploiting spectroscopic data from the MUSE instrument at ESO's VLT she will map spatially resolved the chemical enrichment and the velocity field of the system. In comparison to simulations we will get a better understanding how merging affects galaxy evolution.
