Suzanne works on the chemistry of star-forming regions - in particular, the origin of complex organic molecules. For this work she performs large surveys of the molecular composition of both low- and high-mass protostars using observations at submillimeter wavelengths. Suzanne got her Ph.D. at Leiden University in October 2007 and was a post doc at the Max Planck Institute für Radioastronomie in Bonn, Germany for two years before joining our group.

Dr. Suzanne Bisschop, post doc

Johan is currently working on his Ph.D. thesis focusing on the relationship between the physical and chemical structure of low-mass protostellar envelopes and their ambient environments. Johan did his undergraduate studies at Chalmers University and spent 9 months at as a student intern at the Nordic Optical Telescope before moving to Copenhagen in the summer of 2010.

M.Sc. Johan Lindberg, Ph.D. student

Besides being the leader of the group, Jes works on the physics and chemistry of young stars with a particular emphasis on the earliest deeply embedded stages. Jes earned his Ph.D. at Leiden University in October 2004 and has since then worked at Harvard Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics and Argelander Institute for Astronomy at University of Bonn, Germany before moving back to Copenhagen in 2010.

Dr. Jes Jørgensen, associate professor / group leader

Susanne studies the hydroxyl (OH) radical in star-forming regions, which is a key molecule in the water chemistry, using Herschel observations and radiative transfer modeling. After joining our group we have started a project to determine isotopic ratios in the envelopes of protostars using data from ground based telescopes. Susanne graduated from ETH Zurich in January 2012.

Dr. Susanne Wampfler, post doc

Christian works on the formation and evolution of protoplanetary disks from a modeling perspective. Using radiative transfer codes, Christian derives age characteristics of protostars from high-resolution sub-mm interferometric observations. After finishing his Ph.D from the University of Leiden in 2008, Christian worked for three years at the ALMA Regional Centres at the Universities of Bonn and Leiden before joining our group.

Dr. Christian Brinch, post doc

Julie is working on her Ph.D. thesis on observations of complex organic molecules in star forming region. Julie did her undergraduate studies at Institute for Physics and Astronomy at Aarhus University and also worked as a student intern at the Nordic Optical Telescope before moving to Copenhagen in the fall of 2012.

M.Sc. Julie Lykke, Ph.D. student

Dr. Audrey Coutens, post doc

Audrey works on observations of water and its deuterated isotopologues in regions of star formation - in particular, from the Herschel Space Observatory and ground-based millimeter wavelength telescopes. Audrey did her Ph.D. at Institut de Recherche en Astrophysique et Planetologie in Toulouse, graduated in the fall 2012 and joined our group in Copenhagen in January 2013.

Søren is working on his Ph.D. thesis on coupling numerical simulations and observations of star forming regions through detailed radiative transfer. Søren did his undergraduate studies at Institute for Physics and Astronomy at Aarhus University and also worked as a student intern at the Nordic Optical Telescope before moving to Copenhagen in the beginning of 2013.

M.Sc. Søren Frimann, Ph.D. student

Dr. Per Bjerkeli, post doc

Per works on infrared and submillimeter observations of young stars and their associated outflows and jets. Per obtained his Ph.D. from Chalmers University of Technology / Onsala Space Observatory in the fall of 2012 where he also spent a year as a post doc and support scientist before joining our group through a stipend from the Swedish Research Council in November 2013.
