Main Research Fields
My research focusses on several aspect of massive star evolution. I'm an expert in modeling stellar spectra using state-of-the art model atmosphere codes.
My research focusses on the very late stages of evolution (Wolf-Rayet stars), massive binaries, mass loss, and evolution at low metallicity.
- Wolf-Rayet stars
- Massive binaries
- Mass loss
- Massive stars at low metallicities
- The VLT/FLAMES Tarantula Survey (VFTS): A multi-epoch ESO Large Programme targeting about a 1000 massive stars in the 30 Doradus region (Tarantula nebula)
- The Tarantula Massive Binary Monitoring (TMBM) project: A 30-epoch VFTS follow-up of 102 massive binaries in the 30 Doradus region
- Southern Massive Stars at High Angular Resolution (SMASH+): An interferometric programme on VLTi/PIONEER and VLT/NACO (SAM) to detect interferometric companions to all nearby Southern O-type stars
