Research Areas

The Theory & Star Formation Group has three professors, which have their own research fields, which in some cases overlap. This is the main overview page, to obtain more information about the research areas of one specific professor (sub-group), please click on the name of the professor. Some projects come even with their own specific project page, which you can access by clicking on the respective link. Some of the project pages are still missing or under construction. Please stay tuned...
