Jean Michel Gomes is a researcher at IA with the work contract reference DL 57/2016/CP1364/CT0003. He has obtained his MSc (2005) and Ph.D. (2009) degrees at the Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina, Brazil with a one-year period as part of his doctorate at Observatoire de Paris (2008). He has arrived at IA-Centro de Astrofísica da Universidade do Porto in 2010 after obtaining a postdoc research grant from Fundação para a Ciência e Tecnologia - FCT.
Jean's main research interests are in extragalactic astrophysics with an emphasis on studies of galaxy formation and evolution by means of: Spectral synthesis techniques: Population and Evolutionary Synthesis; Spatially resolved studies with integral field spectroscopy (IFS) of galaxies; Emission-line galaxies and ionization mechanisms of their nebular content: Star-Formation, Active Galactic Nuclei, hot evolved stars (e.g. Post-AGB stars), Shocks.
He also has expertise in computational astrophysics, machine learning, multi-objective optimization techniques, data mining, and development of software for extragalactic astronomy. He has developed the population synthesis (PS) code FADO and contributed to the development of the STARLIGHT PS code, contributed to the Porto3D IFS pipeline, as well as other accompanying tools, such as the development of the RemoveYoung post-processing tool for IFS and REBETIKO evolutionary synthesis code.
Jean has knowledge of the following programming languages/IDEs: Fortran 77/90/2008, Code::Blocks, Python, Spyder, C/C++, OpenMPI, ESO-MIDAS, IDL, Super Mongo & bash scripts.
