About our speaker:

R. Earle Luck is the Worcester R. and Cornelia B. Warner Professor of Astronomy at Case Western Reserve University. His research interests concentrate on problems of stellar evolution and physics coupled to galactic chemical evolution. His primary tools in this endeavor are abundance studies of stars based on high-resolution spectroscopic data and detailed modelling of stellar physics. When not considering the details of stellar abundances, Professor Luck often looks to the past in a consideration of archaeoastronomy, a subject about which he teaches a writing course for entering first-year CWRU students.
