Molecular Astrophysics

Molecular astrophysics uses radiation from molecules to probe the properties of objects from galaxies to solar system bodies and involves collaborations between chemists, physicists and astronomers.

At Queen’s we develop theoretical models to interpret observations of star birth and star death obtained with the ALMA interferometer.  In particular, we study the circumstellar envelopes of late-type, oxygen-rich stars through the international ATOMIUM project,  as well as the planet-forming regions of protoplanetary disks.
