Welcome to Dimitrios' homepageMy name is Dimitrios Gouliermis and I am a research scientist at the Institute for Theoretical Astrophysics (ITA) at the University of Heidelberg, and a research associate at the Max-Planck Institute for Astronomy (MPIA) in Heidelberg.
My research focuses on the formation and early evolution of stellar clusters and associations, and their interaction with the ambient interstellar medium.
My research potrfolio covers a large variety of topics on Galactic
and extragalactic clustered star formation. These topics include the
investigation of resolved young stellar populations of starburst
clusters and young stellar clusters in the
Milky Way, Star-Forming Regions in the Magellanic Clouds, and young
Stellar Complexes in more distant galaxies.
In particular I am interested in young stellar clusters, embedded in star-forming regions of our neighboring galaxies the Large & Small Magellanic Clouds (see my dedicated research web-page). The investigation of the cluster population of the spectacular Tarantula nebula in the Large Magellanic Cloud is also recently added to my research work with observations taken with the Hubble Space Telescope within the Hubble Tarantula Treasury Project (HTTP).
Star clusters, stellar associations, and large stellar complexes in more distant galaxies of the Local Group are also included in my research interests. My studies are performed in the Andromeda galaxy within the Panchromatic Andromeda Galaxy Treasury (PHAT) HST Program, and in 51 distant star-forming galaxies through my collaboration with the Hubble Treasury program LEGUS (Legacy ExtraGalactic UV Survey).
