Stéphane Courteau  --- Research Interests
Along with my students and colleagues, I study the formation, evolution, structure, and distribution of galaxies. Research topics involve our own Milky Way, stellar populations in external galaxies, galaxy dynamics, properties of field and cluster galaxies, distribution of visible and dark matter in the Universe, numerical simulations of galaxies, and testing cosmologically-motivated structure formation models. Central to my research efforts is the development of original tests to elucidate fundamental theoretical and/or empirical puzzles in extragalactic astronomy.
My research also involves compiling extensive data bases for structural parameters of nearby galaxies. Through observing programs that I lead, or via collaborations, my students have access to some of the best observational research facilities worldwide.
