    puzzles in extragalactic astronomy My research also involves assembling extensive data bases for structural parameters of nearby galaxies and applying devising numerical methods for their analysis Through observing programs that I lead or via collaborations my students have access to some of the best observational research facilities worldwide Research Opportunities I am always keen to add more driven and talented students to my research group Feel free to contact me by email courteau astro queensu ca if my research is of interest to you I welcome applications from students interested in exploring topics in Galactic and Extragalactic Astronomy at the MSc or PhD levels Research topics range from stellar populations in globular clusters and nearby galaxies to the dynamical modelling of galaxies and the distribution of dark matter in the universe and involve a mix of observational projects data modeling numerical analysis and simulations My students travel all over the world to present their research at conferences and workshops or to attend winter summer schools or for astronomical observations I typically supervise highly motivated students and care very much about their future career I am proud that all my former graduate students are employed in astronomy Students are encouraged to
