Don VandenBerg is a professor of Astronomy (Ph.D. Australian National University) at the department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. Dr. VandenBerg is internationally acclaimed for his work on modelling stars of different size and composition.
Using basic input physics (e.g. nuclear reaction rates and opacities), Dr. VandenBerg uses computer models to help understand the structure and evolution of stars. These models, which are tightly constrained by observations, provide insight into stellar populations and will ultimately be used to synthesize the stellar populations of distant galaxies.
