The TOS group as a whole focusses on the understanding of stellar structure and evolution of predominantly low-mass stars. This is done in a holistic way using different kinds of observations (spectroscopy, photometry, asteroseismology, astrometry and when available interferometry) and stellar models. In short we are on “the quest for the ultimate stellar model”.
