Welcome to the homepage of
Stellar evolution of low- and intermediate-mass stars:
Low-mass stars: evolution, physics (mixing processes, nucleosynthesis)
intermediate-mass stars: Asymptotic Giant Branch (evolution, mixing, nucleosynthesis), Cepheids (convection, mass)
The Sun (interior structure, seismology, solar abundance problem)
Asteroseismology (giants, clusters, massive stars: models for seismic analysis; CoRoT, KEPLER, PLATO)
Clusters, globular and open (age, composition, sub-populations, laboratories for stellar structure theory)
Stellar ages (clusters, field stars, individual stars)
Dynamical and energetic events in stars (core helium flash, thermal pulses, convection, semiconvection, hydrostatic and -dynamic approach)
Evolution of Pop III stars (low-mass, composition, extremely metal-poor stars in the galactic halo)
Population synthesis: stellar models as input, AGB stars: evolutionary state and colours
AGB- and post-AGB-evolution (see above; and - how to produce good models for AGB-stars?)
As a professor (Honorar-Professur) at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (since 2001) I am teaching regularly for the astronomy master program, and have been supervising Diploma, Master, and PhD students.

Contact me! Details about availability and subjects should be discussed with me, but here is a short list (not necessarily up-to-date...). More subjects will be possible.
