Metallicity appears to be one the most important tool to study formation and evolution of galaxies. Recently, we have shown that metallicity of local galaxies is tightly related not only to stellar mass, but also to star formation rate (SFR). At low stellar mass, metallicity decreases sharply with increasing SFR, while at high stellar mass, metallicity does not depend on SFR. The residual metallicity dispersion across this Fundamental Metallicity Relation (FMR) is very small, about 0.05dex…

Study of the Far Infrared Emission of Nearby Spiral Galaxies
In my PHD work I explored the links between the physical properties of interstellar dust and other components of nearby spiral galaxies especially their stellar content. I worked on 46 disk galaxies
