Stellar Mass Loss

Toshiya Ueta

This research revolves around stellar mass loss process. More broadly, we investigate:

  • stellar evolution, especially the late stages from the red giant to the planetary nebula phases;
  • astropaleontology, the study of the past evolution of astronomical sources through investigation of the circumsource material distribution;
  • radiative transfer in dusty media;
  • infrared observations of dusty media;
  • and astromineralogy, the composition and formation of circumstellar and interstellar dust.

We utilize various space- and ground-based observatories around the world, including the Hubble Space Telescope and the Mauna Kea and European Southern Observatories.
