Research Project

The Nature of Lithium Enhancement in a Halo Star

My research involves looking into a star in the Milky Way halo that has a strange abundance of lithium as well as a handful of other elements. I will quantify these abundances, derive certain attributes of the star and its surroundings, and to determine how these attributes explain the odd chemical abundances in this unique star.
