ASAMBA:
AsteroSeismic Approach Towards Understanding Massive Blue SupergiAnts

Objective

The recent space-born missions dedicated to studying stellar variability
providing unprecedented high-precision photometry of variable massive
Additionally, we have also monitored a sample of oscillating blue supergiants in high-precision spectroscopy over 7 years.
Such rich observational data call for carefully designed methods for astrophysical interpretation.

This project aims to develop and provide such methodology.
Our tools will be used to enhance the understanding of the physics of massive B-type dwarfs and BA-type supergiants.
