My research project
Towards a comprehensive study of the Small Magellanic Cloud
My project is based on the use of photometric data form the Survey of the MAgellanic Stellar History (SMASH) to study the structure and star formation history of the Small Magellanic Cloud. In a more general context, the information coming from my research is going to contribute to how much galaxy interactions shape the structures and the evolution of the different components that compose them. This is important to contribute to our understanding of more fundamental questions like the nature of dark matter.
