My main research interests concern the early history of the Milky Way and surrounding galaxies. I am using both photometric and spectroscopic observations as well as modelling to study these systems. In particular, several of my projects focus on the first generations of stars in these systems that contain valuable information about our Galaxy’s childhood as well as conditions in the early Universe in general. I am the founder and Principal Investigator for the "Pristine Survey", an international collaboration uncovering and studying these rare earliest generation stars in the Galaxy with high efficiency. I am also much involved in upcoming and future instrumentation and surveys in my field, for instance as co-lead for one of the 4MOST Galactic surveys and the very metal-poor (early generation) stars science in WEAVE.
