My research work consists in the study of the stellar evolution and nucleosynthesis, stellar pulsations, as well as the chemical evolution of the Milky Way and its stellar populations.
I focus on the effects of transport processes of angular momentum and chemical species on the stellar structure and surface properties. I study in particular giant stars, by comparing theoretical patterns with spectroscopic, asteroseismic and astrometric observations.
I investigate in detail the consequences of these aspects on the chemical evolution of our Galaxy ; and on the properties of Galactic stellar populations.
All these theoretical developments are strongly connected with observational projects on European and American facilities.
