Quentin Coppée

PhD researcher in the group Theory and Observations of Stars (TOS) at Heidelberg Institute for Theoretical Studies (HITS)

Research Interests

I am interested in stellar astrophysics and evolution, and in particular in the study of the stellar interior through asteroseismology. The main focus of my PhD project lies in the depressed dipole modes observed in red giants. In this project, I aim to confirm the mixed character of these modes and to verify the present mechanisms proposed to explain this phenomenon.
