New Co-Lead for the Chemical Nucleosynthesis Science Working Group
The MSE project is pleased to announce that Charli Sakari (San Francisco State University) will assume the role of co-lead for the Chemical Nucleosynthesis Science Working Group. Charli brings her experience studying chemical abundances of stars and globular clusters in the Local Volume, including the Milky Way, M31, and the LMC. She is a core member of the R-Process Alliance project, which has recently amassed the largest sample of r-process enhanced stars in the Milky Way and seeks to solve the mystery of how these elements, which make up nearly half of the Periodic Table, were produced in the Universe.
Charli replaces David Yong (Australian National University) as co-lead of the working group. MSE sincerely thanks David for his years of collaboration in the project, including leading the Chemical Nucleosynthesis chapter in the 2018 version of the Detailed Science Case for MSE.
