About me

My name is Jérémy Fensch. I am an Associate Professor at ENS de Lyon and astrophysicist researcher at Centre de Recherche Astrophysique de Lyon.

My research focuses on galaxy collisions and induced formation of stars, star clusters and tidal dwarf galaxies. I am also interested in the evolution of globular clusters and the evolution of galactic structures with redshift.

To this purpose, I run and study numerical simulations, using the AMR code RAMSES. I am also involved in observational projects and use data from the VLT (FORS and MUSE) and the Hubble Space Telescope.
