Initial Stages / Open heavy-flavour and quarkonia production at LHCb

Charm and bottom quark production is an important experimental observable that sheds light on the heavy quark interaction with the nuclear medium. With high statistics datasets, tracking and PID at very low transverse momentum, and excellent vertexing capabilities, LHCb performs precision measurements of a rich set of heavy flavor hadrons. These capabilities allow for precise studies of strangeness enhancement, baryon enhancement, and charmonia suppression in various colliding systems from $pp$ to $p$Pb and PbPb. Furthermore, LHCb has unique access to the production of the exotic $\chi_{c1}$(3872) hadrons in $pp$ and $p$Pb collisions. In this contribution, we will present the most recent results, including $\Xi_c^+$ production in $p$Pb, along with comparisons to theoretical calculations.
