Dr Matsuno will start his position at the Astronomisches Rechen-Institut on Oct. 1st. He mainly studies old, low-metallicity stars in the Milky Way to understand the origin of elements and the formation history of the Milky Way. (2023/09/13)

Dr. Andreas Sander (ZAH/ARI) hosted his inspiring "Hengstberger Symposium" on nucleosynthesis and stellar yields of massive stars at the Internationales Wissenschaftsforum Heidelberg (IWH) from September 4th to 8th. (2023/09/08)

Prof. Dave Rupke (Rhodes College, US) started his visitorship at ARI. His research focuses on galactic winds driven by AGN and star formation activity. He is hosted by Dominika Wylezalek. (2023/09/01)
