Dr. BENARD NSAMBA
Hello World! Welcome to my webpage :).
I am currently a Branco Weiss fellow performing astronomy research activities between the Max-Planck-Institut fur Astrophysik (MPA) in Garching - Germany and Kyambogo University (KyU) in Kampala - Uganda. I am also a Max-Planck partnership group leader with a goal of contributing to the development of astrophysics research in Uganda. My research interests focus mainly on exploring stellar interior physics of solar-type stars using asteroseismic techniques. I also investigate the impact of stellar model physics on stellar parameters determined using forward modelling methods. In addition, my research activities are also directed towards essential contributions to the preparatory activities of the ESA's PLATO (PLAnetary Transits and Oscillations of stars) space mission.
