“One of the current prime challenges is the evolution of massive binaries”

Interview with Jo Puls

His interest about the radiative transfer began in a lecture about "Stellar Atmospheres" he attended when he was studying his Physics degree. He was previously interested in particle physics but he liked the approach of quantitative spectroscopy which connects theory and observations and he wrote his Diploma thesis on radiative transfer in expanding atmospheres. Nowadays, Jo(achim) Puls is professor and researcher in the Universitätssternwarte der LMU München, where he works with his team investigating about radiative transfer in early-type stars and related problems, with many international collaborations like the one with the IAC team. Hes is one of the teachers of the XXIX Canary Islands Winter School of Astrophysics organized by the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias in collaboration with the Universidad de La Laguna (ULL). >> Read the interview
