Progress in fundamental topics in stellar, galactic, and extragalactic astrophysics nowadays depend crucially on the collection of high quality spectra for huge samples of stars, clusters and galaxies. It is humanely impossible to analyse these huge samples in an interactive way, so a cutting edge field these days is the development of automatic analysis techniques. Our group at ARI is developing such pipelines. The student wishing to join this project would get to help in pipeline development, while pursuing applications to astrophysical problems of her/his choice.
