September 30th, 2016: Origins of Gas Giant Compositions: The Role of Disk Location and Dynamics

The composition of planets is determined by and tightly linked to the composition of the protoplanetary disk in which they form. In the first part of my talk, I will discuss giant planet formation through core accretion. In the second part, I will explore how the composition and evolution of protoplanetary disks may affect the formation and chemical composition of giant planets.
