The Stars group studies various properties of stars, including their chemical composition, pulsations, and evolution, as well as the properties of compact objects such as white dwarfs and neutron stars. The members also use stars as tracers of the formation and evolution of our own Galaxy.

Research areas include:

  • Chemical Abundances
  • Compact Objects
  • Cool Stars
  • Galactic Structure
  • Space Astrometry
  • Stellar Clusters
  • Stellar Pulsation
  • Whole Earth Telescope
