Chemistry in protoplanetary disks
Kamber Schwarz studies chemistry in protoplanetary disks, which is crucial for understanding the history of our own solar system as well as extra-solar systems. Using elaborate disk models she investigates how initial chemical abundances and environmental conditions such as radiation from nearby massive stars influence the chemical makeup and physical conditions in disks. By combining these models with data from observatories such as the Atacama Large Millimeter Array and the Herschel Space Observatory, she plans to constrain the physical properties of nearby protoplanetary systems, including the temperature structure, disk mass, and molecular abundances. Schwarz intends to use the combination of models and observations to create a realistic template disk, which can then be applied to future models and observations of low-mass protoplanetary systems, allowing for more accurate interpretations of observational data.
