From midplane to planets : the chemical fingerprint of a disk
This thesis addresses the chemical processes that determine the compositions of giant planet atmospheres.
Protoplanetary disk anatomy: examining the structure and chemistry of planetary birthplaces with simple molecules
This thesis examines the link between simple molecules and the underlying structure and chemistry within protoplanetary disks - the birthplaces of planets.
Mind the gap: gas and dust in planet-forming disks
Promotores: Prof.dr. E.F. van Dishoeck, Prof.dr. C.P. Dullemond
From grains to planetesimals: the microphysics of dust coagulation

High-Contrast Imaging of Protoplanetary Disks
To study how planetary systems come into existence we study much younger systems still in formation.
Planet formation: food for thought
Planet formation is a surprisingly homogeneous process that does not take place gradually from inside out, but that occurs everywhere at the same time in a proto-planetary disc, as Dave Lommen has discovered. He will obtain his doctorate this week based on his research into the dust around young stars
Leiden discovery of planetary births is worldwide news
In Germany, the United States and even in Vietnam: all over the world, the Leiden discovery of the birth of two planets was shared. Astronomer Sebastiaan Haffert and his team were able to record multiple planets in the making for the first time and published their findings in Nature Astronomy. A unique
Chemistry can change the ingredients in planet formation
Which molecules go into forming planets? PhD candidate Christian Eistrup and his colleagues have created new models to research this question. Their findings could change our idea of which molecules were forming Jupiter or even Earth.
