Anke Arentsen


After my bachelors and masters at the University of Groningen, I started my PhD at the AIP in 2016. I am interested in the oldest, most metal-poor stars in our Galaxy which teach us about the earliest phases of star and galaxy formation. My main research work focusses on finding and analysing the most metal-poor stars in the Galactic Bulge, using the Pristine survey to very efficiently select targets. Additionally, I work on a radial velocity monitoring project for a specific class of carbon-enhanced metal-poor stars, the CEMP-no stars, to learn more about their origin. Thirdly, I am involved with the X-shooter Spectral Library project for which I work on the determination of the stellar atmospheric parameters.
