Chemical Evolution of 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.
- The UGR participates in the PLATO mission to search for habitable planets !!!
- Our first 3D SPH simulations of a sub-stellar object engulfment by a main sequence star published in A&A, Vol 670
- Our Research Group participates in the new EU COST Action – CA21106 “COSMIC WISPers in the Dark Universe: theory, astrophysics, experiments” 2022-2026.
