Context. Physical processes that govern the star and planet formation sequence influence the chemical composition and evolution of protoplanetary disks. Recent studies allude to an early start to planet formation already during the formation of a disk. To understand the chemical composition of protoplanets, we need to constrain the composition and structure of the disks from whence they are formed. Aims. We aim to determine the molecular abundance structure of the young disk around the TMC1A… Expand


Missing water in Class I protostellar disks
Water is a key volatile that provides insights into the initial stages of planet formation. The low water abundances inferred from water observations toward low-mass protostellar objects may point toExpand
Radiative Transfer Modeling of EC 53: An Episodically Accreting Class I Young Stellar Object
In the episodic accretion scenario, a large fraction of the protostellar mass accretes during repeated and large bursts of accretion. Since outbursts on protostars are typically identified atExpand
Rapid Evolution of Volatile CO from the Protostellar Disk Stage to the Protoplanetary Disk Stage
Recent observations show that the CO gas abundance, relative to H$_2$, in many 1-10 Myr old protoplanetary disks may be heavily depleted, by a factor of 10-100 compared to the canonical interstellarExpand
Temperature Structures of Embedded Disks: Young Disks in Taurus Are Warm
The chemical composition of gas and ice in disks around young stars set the bulk composition of planets. In contrast to protoplanetary disks (Class II), young disks that are still embedded in theirExpand
Young Faithful: The Eruptions of EC 53 as It Cycles through Filling and Draining the Inner Disk
While young stellar objects sometimes undergo bursts of accretion, these bursts usually occur sporadically, making them challenging to study observationally and to explain theoretically. We build aExpand

Carbon depletion observed inside T Tauri inner rims
Context. The carbon content of protoplanetary disks is an important parameter to characterize planets formed at different disk radii. There is some evidence from far-infrared and submillimeterExpand
Constraining disk evolution prescriptions of planet population synthesis models with observed disk masses and accretion rates
While planets are commonly discovered around main-sequence stars, the processes leading to their formation are still far from being understood. Current planet population synthesis models, which aimExpand
Effect of Different Angular Momentum Transport Mechanisms on the Distribution of Water in Protoplanetary Disks
The snow line in a protoplanetary disk demarcates regions with H$_2$O ice from regions with H$_2$O vapor. Where a planet forms relative to this location determines how much water and other volatilesExpand
Elemental and molecular abundances in comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko
Comets are considered to be some of the most pristine and unprocessed Solar system objects accessible to in situ exploration. Investigating their molecular and elemental composition takes us on aExpand
