Circumstellar disks and planet formation
Magnetic fields during star and planet formation
Debris disks in planetary systems

Infrared long-baseline interferometry
Selected research projects
How do stars form in interstellar clouds?
Can we observe the formation of planets?
Which physical effects lead to the evolution of circumstellar disks to planetary systems?
To answer these questions, we use world-class ground-based telescopes and space observatories. For the planning and analysis of our observations we develop state-of-the-art numerical simulations.
