Chemo-dynamical analysis of metal-poor stars of the Galactic halo
The subject of my PhD thesis is chemo-dynamical analysis of Galactic halo stars. I will use high-resolution pectroscopy to determine the chemical abundances of a large sample of metal-poor stars in a homogeneous way, and combine these data with astrometry of the second Gaia data release, to understand the formation and early chemical evolution of our Galaxy.
