12. January 2018

On January 9, 2018, the PSO group hosted Dr. Maria Lugaro from the Konkoly Observatory of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences.  Maria leads a research group that tries to understand how nuclear reactions inside stars produce the chemical elements that make up the world around us, and all the other stars and planetary systems in the Universe. Maria visited Heidelberg to give a talk at the Heidelberg Joint Astronomical Colloquium (HJAC) of the Zentrum für Astronomie der Universität Heidelberg on January 9. A video recording of her excellent review on “Nucleosynthesis and the origin of stardust grains” is available in the HJAC video channel.

About HITS

HITS, the Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies, was established in 2010 by physicist and SAP co-founder Klaus Tschira (1940-2015) and the Klaus Tschira Foundation as a private, non-profit research institute. HITS conducts basic research in the natural, mathematical, and computer sciences. Major research directions include complex simulations across scales, making sense of data, and enabling science via computational research. Application areas range from molecular biology to astrophysics. An essential characteristic of the Institute is interdisciplinarity, implemented in numerous cross-group and cross-disciplinary projects. The base funding of HITS is provided by the Klaus Tschira Foundation.
