Research

Our activities are related to the study of stellar evolution, in a broad context. Three Leuven expert teams are active in the specific areas of asteroseismology, evolved low-mass stars and exoplanets.  A fourth team is involved in the development of astronomical instrumentation, both for ground-based facilities and for space science satellites.
