Biography

John works in the School of Physics and Astronomy at Monash University as a Professor

John's research areas of interest are:

  • Stellar astrophysics; stellar nucleosynthesis, especially red-giants and the thermally pulsing evolutionary phases; chemical formation of the Galaxy and evolution of the Galaxy. Current projects include: a theoretical and observational study of 'hot bottom burning'; in red giants, making heavy elements in stars, abundance anomalies in red-giants in globular clusters, evolution and nucleosynthesis of Super-AGB stars, chemical evolution of the early Universe and true Population III stars.
