My name is Christian Rab. I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Group of Barbara Ercolano at the USM/LMU in Munich and at the MPE in the CAS group of Paola Caselli.

My main interest is star and planet formation. To understand the (initial) conditions for planet-formation I use observations (e.g. ALMA) and model the circumstellar environment (disks, envelopes) of young stars using the radiation thermo-chemical modelling code ProDiMo.
