    Simple and complex molecules in star-forming regions

    Cécile Favre's research is related to the study of temperature and structure of high-mass and low-mass star-forming regions. Her research goal is to understand the observed molecular complexity and to improve our present knowledge of the physical and chemical processes that are occurring in regions where star and planet formation occur. More specifically, she uses (sub)millimeter observations of different molecular species (simple, complex and prebiotic molecules) such as C17O, methyl formate and glycoladehyde, carried out with single-dish telescopes and interferometers such as APEX, Herschel, PdBI and ALMA. Favre is also working on chemistry in proto-planetary disks using a state-of-the-art chemical network.
