I am Professor of Planetary Sciences and Planet Formation at the Globe Institute at the University of Copenhagen. My research focuses on the formation of planets, the properties of the first atmospheres of rocky planets, and the origin of life.
I obtained my PhD degree in 2007 at the Max Planck Institute for Astronomy and at Heidelberg University. After that I spent a bit more than two years as a postdoc at Leiden Observatory. I went through the career stages of assistant professor, associate professor and full professor at Lund University between 2010 and 2020. Since 2020, I am on leave from Lund University and my main activity is at the University of Copenhagen.
