About Me

KamberSchwarzI am a postdoc at MPIA in Heidelberg. Previously, I was a NASA Sagan Postdoctoral Fellow in the Lunar and Planetary Laboratory at the University of Arizona. I received my PhD in Astronomy & Astrophysics for the University of Michigan in 2018.

I study the evolution of volatile gas during planet formation, with the ultimate goal of determining the amount of volatile carbon, nitrogen, and oxygen available to forming planets. My research combines observations from millimeter interferometers such as ALMA and NOEMA with physical/chemical modeling in order to constrain the timescales and mechanisms of volatile reprocessing.
