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).
