Hello! My name is Natalie or Natasha, if shorter. You may say that it does not sound shorter. Maybe. At least, it sounds more friendly.

Well, who am I? I am an astronomer. When I say this, I remember a picture from my sister's book - a dog looking in a telescope tube. It is not precisely what I am doing (frankly speaking, I did that few times only). I work mostly with my computer and try to understand from simulations what some astronomical objects are. You may read my papers if you want details or look at my research interests if you prefer just an overview.

Here is a little person taking most of my free time.

I also like good chocolate (swiss is great! belgian is also fine...) and red wine, Volvo cars, flowers, dancing, travelling and many other things... Welcome to my home page!
