My name is Adriana Pohl and I am currently a PhD student in astronomy at
Heidelberg University, Germany. I work in the planet formation group led
by Prof. Dr. Cornelis Dullemond at the Institute of Theoretical Astrophysics (ITA),
as well as in the planet and star formation group at the Max-Planck-Institute for
Astronomy (MPIA) under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Thomas Henning and Dr. Roy van Boekel.
My main research interests are in the field of protoplanetary disks and planet formation. In my PhD I focus on hydrodynamical
simulations of planet-disk interactions and on radiative transfer modeling, a powerful tool to directly link simulation results
to current telescope observations.
I am a fellow of the International Max Planck Research School for Astronomy and Cosmic Physics at the University of Heidelberg (IMPRS-HD).
