About the author

Anna Ferré-Mateu is an astronomer and "La Caixa" postdoctoral researcher at our institute, where she is one of the members of the Galaxy Structure and Evolution research group. The group’s researchers study both galactic astronomy – inside the Milky Way- and extragalactic astronomy – beyond the Milky Way. This includes a large array of objects ranging from dwarf galaxies, quasars and clusters of galaxies, and spanning the last 13 billion years of the history of the Universe. The research in extragalactic astronomy includes the modelling of galaxy’s formation processes, the study of intergalactic matter and making predictions based on analytical models.
