Research Interests: Organic molecules are found in a diverse set of astronomical environments, demonstrating that there are efficient astrochemical pathways to molecular complexity. Interstellar grains and their icy mantles are proposed to be important formation sites of many of these molecules. Understanding the structure, dynamics and chemistry of ices is thus key to advance our understanding of the chemistry in space.
