Profile

Daniel is a researcher working in the Radio Astronomy and Astrophysics group located at the Onsala Space Observatory (Department of Earth and Space Sciences).
His research is focused on the study of circumstellar envelopes of stars that are reaching the end of their lives, so called evolved stars. The main goal of the research is to understand how the existence of stars, like our sun, comes to an end. To carry out his investigations he uses radio telescopes such as APEX, ALMA, and the JVLA. He also dedicates part of his working time to support the activities at the Nordic ALMA Regional Center.

The detection and study of molecular gas in born-again stars would be of
great importance to understand their composition and chemical evolution. In
addition, the molecular emission would be an invaluable tool to explore the
physical conditions, k...
