Chemical Evolution of the Galaxies
Asteroseismology & Planet Detection
Infrared Astronomy from Antarctica
We study the evolution of low and intermediate mass stars (M < 8 M⊙): the mixing and nucleosynthesis processes occurring in their interiors, surface chemical composition, final outcome as white dwarfs and/or thermonuclear supernovae, and their use in cosmology and the chemical evolution of the Universe, all both from the theoretical and observational points of view. We do also asteroseismology from space and its use for the detection and characterization of extrasolar planets.
