Abstract: Astroseismology is the study of pulsations produced by vibrational physics in stars, working in the same way that vibrations produce sound in musical instruments. The study of pulsations allows us to probe the deep internal workings of a star and is the best known way to determine interior properties and dynamics. This talk will discuss the techniques and interesting results of my research and the links between asteroseismologists and planet hunters.
