PhD thesis: The ΛCDM model at small scales:
Milky Way's satellites and the cusp-core crisis

General publications: ADS

Research field and projects

  • Cosmological simulations of galaxy formation: isolated galaxies (MAGICC project) and constrained Local Group simulations (CLUES project)
  • LCDM problems at small scales: cusp/core discrepancy, missing satellites and too-big-to-fail problem
  • Star formation history in Local Group satellite galaxies: the impact of environment and infalling
  • Role of baryonic feedback in shaping the dark matter density profile of galaxies: theoretical predictions for populations of galaxies
