UniMass - Bruno Henriques

I have recently joined the Excellence Grant Team project UNIMASS, PI Claudia Maraston as a postdoc.
My field of expertise is the implementation of robust statistical techniques into semi-analytic models of galaxy formation (Monte Carlo Markov Chain), maximizing the constraining power and the information obtained from different observations indicative of the different physics that shape a galaxy population. The comprehensive picture obtained makes it clear to understand the impact of evolutionary population synthesis assumptions on the predicted galaxies and highlights the improvements obtained by correctly treating the TP-AGB phase of stellar evolution.
