My main research topic is the study of the late phases of stellar evolution. Evolved stars are common in our Galaxy. They are often surrounded by shells of gas and dust, which are remnants of their chaotic last stages of evolution. These shells can be studied using different telescopes and instruments. Their morphology and abundances give us clues of the late stellar evolution.
Last stage in the life of a solar type star. Their colors and shapes are intriguing and gorgeous.
Transient events in binary systems caused by a thermonuclear explosion on the surface of a white-dwarf star.
Huge bubbles of ionized gas around evolved massive stars with the most powerful stellar winds.
The astronomical robotic observatory is used by students and faculty at our University like an astronomical laboratory and for research. LINK
Research projects and ideas of faculty members and students are presented in a pleasant way for science dissemination. LINK
