Practical matters How to find us prof. dr. R.F. (Reynier) Peletier

Research interests

I am a Professor at the Kapteyn Institute at the University of Groningen. I study the formation and evolution of galaxies, by studying their structure, kinematics and stellar populations. At the moment, I my research is mostly focused on studying dwarf galaxies in the nearby Universe, but I am also very interested in working on new techniques to better study the galaxy population.
