This thesis is related to the study of the complex physics involved in the formation of interstellar structures in galaxies. It will focus on the analysis of 21 cm data obtained with ASKAP, the Australian SKA Pathfinder, providing a high-resolution view of the Galactic neutral interstellar medium. The project proposed here rests on the unique combination of expertise present in a new France-Australia collaboration. The Australian group has a unique expertise in the processing and analysis of the ASKAP data while the French group is a collaboration of astrophysicists and data scientists that have developed an expertise in the source separation of hyper-spectral data sets.The project is funded by the Collaboration Program between The Australian National University (ANU) and the French Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS).
