Planet formation around young stars

Project: Dissertation

Research areas and keywords


  • Planet formation, astronomy


This PhD project will cover the theory of planet formation around young stars.
Using analytical and numerical methods I will investigate the formation of protoplanetary disks from collapsing molecular cloud cores and the formation of planets, via pebble accretion, within these disks. In my PhD studies I will develop a model incorporating protoplanetary disk formation and evolution with a pebble accretion planet formation model.
