The Christy Lecture: Cosmic alchemy in the era of gravitational wave astronomy
Enrico Ramirez-Ruiz, UC Santa Cruz,

Although the general picture of element formation is well understood, many questions about the nuclear physics processes and particularly the astrophysical details remain to be answered. Here I focus on recent advances in our understanding of the origin of the heaviest and rarest elements in the Universe.
