This is a talk given at lunch time, usually in the conference room at noon.
During the last decade observations of galaxies across cosmic times coupled
The field of type Ia Supernovae (SNe) is in crisis.
Planet occurrence rates increase toward later spectral types; therefore, M dwarf systems are our most promising targets in the search for exoplanets.
The Milky Way disc is asymmetric about the midplane.
Thousands of exoplanets have been discovered, but only a handful of them are amendable for atmospheric spectroscopic study. Spectroscopy leads to understanding of physical and chemical processes taking place in an exoplanet.
