The Star and Planet Formation Group seeks to i) make fundamental contributions to research utilizing any available means - observational, theoretical, and instrumental; ii) achieve excellence in education based on best practice in reformed teaching methods at all levels from Bachelors, to Masters, to PhD student mentoring; and iii) help Zurich, Switzerland, and Europe achieve goals of scientific literacy by sharing our passion for astrophysics with the wider community.

If you are interested in learning more, please contact us! Our group meets Mondays from 14:30-15:30 in HIT J 43.1 and also holds a literature review meeting on Fridays from 14:00-15:00 in the same location. We also welcome inquiries from potential visitors and look forward to hosting you as we are able. For students who are interested in doing a semester- or masterarbeit project in our research group, please see the open student projects in Star and Planet Formation.
