Expertise: Astronomy & Astrophysics

In Dutch

As a ‘Milky Way Archaeologist’, astronomer Else Starkenburg studies the early life of our galaxy by examining the oldest generations of stars. She founded the Pristine Survey, an international team that explores the oldest stars and structures in the Milky Way.

Starkenburg is also a leader when it comes to using new instruments that streamline our capacity to learn much more about millions of stars in the Milky Way. As a member of The Young Academy, she will champion postdoctoral researchers on temporary contracts, a group that is often neglected in science policy. She advocates a more inclusive and broader approach, so that less talent is lost.
