The main focus of her analysis is on the lives of huge stars and their function in figuring out the evolution of stellar programs/stellar populations and star clusters, and given the rarity and quick lives of huge stars, she clearly like a problem!
In her PhD thesis, “Large stars and gravitational waves: Bridging the hole with a brand new methodology for fast stellar evolution” she has recognized some severe limitations in present modelling programs and has developed a brand new modelling system that enables fellow researchers to simply use totally different units of stellar evolution tracks, computed with totally different enter parameters.
