Research Interests: 

My main area of research is asteroseismology -- the study of stars through the interpretation of their oscillations -- which aims to understand stellar structure and evolution.

In particular, my interest and expertise are within:
 - Automatic analysis software for big complex data sets incl. AI-methods
 - Modelling stellar evolution and pulsation
 - Solar-like oscillations
 - Stellar clusters
 - Red giant stars
 - Observation and interpretation of stellar oscillations
