Christian Hayes

Postdoctoral Fellow

I'm a postdoctoral fellow at NRC Herzberg studying the Milky Way and its dwarf galaxy satellites.  I'm particularly interested in exploring the chemistry of metal-poor systems to help us understand how they have formed and evolved over time.  I'm also interested in spectroscopy and spectroscopic surveys in general and have worked extensively with the APOGEE survey, both in understanding its observations, but also helping plan and run the survey as its Target/Field Selection Coordinator.
