Areas of Interest
The long-term goal of Dr. Carla Frohlich's research is to understand the origin and history of the chemical elements in the galaxy, in particular of the heavy elements from iron to uranium. Nucleosynthesis calculations provide a powerful link between the abundance observations of metal-poor stars (e.g. from SDSS/Segue) and numerical simulations of the physical system (e.g. supernovae), serving as probe of the underlying physics. My main research interest is to study the nucleosynthesis in core collapse supernovae, in order to understand the earliest enrichment of the galaxy with the heaviest elements.
