Prof. dr. F. Fraternali
I am Professor of Gas dynamics and evolution of galaxies at the Kapteyn Astronomical Institute of the University of Groningen, in the Netherlands.
I study the matter content of galaxies (stars, gas and dark matter) and the connection between galaxies and their surrounding environment (gas accretion and feedback).
The thesis of Cecilia Bacchini was awarded:
1) IAU PhD prize for the best thesis in Interstellar Matter and Local Universe
2) Gratton prize for the best Italian thesis in Astrophysics of the last 2 years.
