Stefan Krauss is Associate Professor of Astrophysics at University of Exeter (UK).
His research focuses on high-angular resolution studies related to star and planet formation. Using interferometers such as VLTI, CHARA, and ALMA, he investigates the inner regions of protoplanetary disks and study the mass accretion and ejection processes taking place close to the forming star. Using these observations, Stefan constrains the structure and physical conditions in the sub-AU inner disk regions and investigate where planets are forming in the disk and how they interact with the disk material.
Hi also serve as Project Scientist for the Planet Formation Imager project (since February 2014).
