Enrico Olivier

Astronomer,

For Enrico Olivier, the stars really are the limit. An astronomer with the South African Astronomical Observatory in Cape Town, his interest in science was sparked at a young age by his parents, who would encourage visits to the local library where he would often lose himself in books. With a PhD in astronomy and astro physics, this easy-going scientist's research interest lies in the area of stellar structure and evolution, in particular the late evolutionary stages of low to intermediate mass stars and the numerical modelling of stellar pulsation (star oscillations). He also participates in projects on galaxy evolution. � Liesl Venter
