Jarle Brinchmann is an FCT research professor and Director of Centre for Astrophysics at the University of Porto. He was awarded a bachelor degree by the University of Oslo in 1992, a master degree by the University of Oslo in 1994 and a PhD by Cambridge University in 1999. He was a post-doc at the University of Oxford, Max Planck Institut für Astrophysik, and CAUP before being a assistant and later associated professor at Leiden University, a position he held until 2018 when he took over as Director of CAUP. He is a member of CAUP and then IA since 2003.
Current research interests focus on galaxy evolution, stellar populations and dark matter in galaxies, the inference of physical parameters of galaxies from spectroscopy and photometry, and machine learning and statistical methods in astronomy. In particular dark matter in ultra-faint dwarf galaxies and nebular gas properties in galaxies at all redshift with a particular fascination for high energy lines such as He II. He is a member of the MUSE consortium with builder status, and legacy science coordinator for the Euclid mission and PI for the MUSE-Faint survey.
He is the maintainer of the MPA-JHU database of galaxy properties for galaxies from SDSS.
