Aldo Serenelli


Research Interests

Dr. Serenelli’s research focuses on theoretical stellar models, in particular for low- and intermediate mass-stars from their earliest to latest evolutionary stages. Specific goals of the research are: understanding the physical processes that govern the structure and evolution of stars, production of chemical elements, study of the internal structure of stars and determination of fundamental stellar paramteter by means of their natural resonant oscillations (asteroseismology), stars as laboratories for particle physics. Solar physics is another important aspect of his research, focusing on solar interior models that can be compared against helioseismic data and results from solar neutrino experiments.

Dr. Serenelli is member of the Kepler Asteroseismic Scientific Consortium (KASC), the Gaia-ESO Survey and an external collaborator of the APOGEE project.
