  • Planet Formation: How do planets form? Is there only one mechanism for giant planet formation? How do giant planets affect the early evolution of young planetary systems? How different are the conditions for planet formation around other stars?

  • Planetary Interiors: What are giant planets made of? How does the planetary composition change with depth?  Do gas giant planets have cores? How can we link planetary composition with planet formation and evolution? What is the connection between planetary composition and the metallicity of the host star? What are the rotation rates of giant planets? How can we link planetary dynamics and internal structure?

  • Space Missions: Involvement in NASA and ESA space missions. Two space missions dedicated to explore Jupiter and its satellite system (Juno, Juice). A space mission to detect and characterize planets around other stars (Plato).
