Dr. Christiane Helling, Director of the St Andrews Center for Exoplanet Science, University of St Andrews, Scotland
Christiane is an astrophysicist who studies atmospheres of extrasolar planets and is
passionate about extrasolar clouds as they block our view into the planet’s atmosphere.
Deciphering the large diversity of exoplanet atmosphere requires us to understand how
exo-clouds, that can be glittery gemstones form. Christiane is also passionate about joining
forces with other disciplines like geosciences, philosophy and modern languages in order to
understand if Earth is a special place in the universe.
