Welcome to Eduardo Telles's Homepage


Edu Telles




I was a Physics undergraduate at the Universidade de São Paulo  where I also got my MSc. degree at Departamento de Astronomia in São Paulo.   I concluded my Ph.D. in Astronomy at the Institute of Astronomy of the University of Cambridge in 1995.  At Cambridge I was a member of Churchill College.

I was on leave, for a 2 year stay (2008-2009) at the Astronomy Department of the University of Virginia, with a US GEMINI from AURA .

I am now back  in the Coordenacao de Astronomia e Astrofisica at the Observatorio Nacional , Rio de Janeiro, Brasil, where I have held a faculty position since 1997.  You can find me at    etelles at on.br or    call/FAX/snail-mail

The Galaxy Catalog

I am mostly interested in the study of violent star formation in galaxies, from giant HII regions, HII galaxies, Starburst Nuclei to
Ultraluminous galaxies.  I present some of ilustrative examples of my research activities.
