Asmus Böhm's Homepage
I am an astrophysicist working at the
Institute for Astrophysics Vienna
Before I came here, I worked at the
Institute for Astro- and Particle Physics Innsbruck
, Austria, the
Leibniz Institute for Astrophysics Potsdam
and the Institute for Astrophysics Göttingen
In my research, I scrutinize the evolution of
galaxies on cosmic time scales. To date, I have acquired
150 hours of observing time with the 8-m European Southern
Observatory Very Large Telescope (ESO-VLT) as Principal Investigator.
Among my key interests is the morphological and kinematical
evolution of galaxies, and how their properties depend on their
environment - they may be isolated, reside in a pair, a group or
even a cluster of galaxies.
Such questions are also the main science drivers of
the STAGES and OMEGA collaborations that I am a team member of. Both
projects target the Abell 901/902 cluster system at a redshift of
z=0.17, two billion light years away from us. For more information on
my projects, please use the menu to the left.
