Theoretical Astrophysics and Planetary Science (TAPS)

The Theoretical Astrophysics and Planetary Science Group (TAPS) carries out investigations aimed at understanding the physical and chemical processes involved in the formation and evolution of the solar and other planetary systems. Our research is based on detailed numerical calculations as well as end-to-end simulations which allow comparisons with observations.
TAPS is a member of the University of Bern Center for Space and Habitability (CSH) and of the Swiss National Centre of Competence in Research (NCCR) PlanetS.
