Research

My research focuses mainly on the early stages of planet formation, during which microscopic dust particles come together to form kilometer-size planetesimals – the building blocks of planets. I am interested in understanding how the chemical and elemental abundances in different regions of the protoplanetary disk are imprinted on the planets that are forming.
