Botany meets astronomy. Get to know new professorial members in an informal setting and a face to face interview. Followed by a reception and occasion to meet.

Get to know our new professorial members. Meet in an informal setting. Learn about their field but also about the scientist behind the science.

In this first edition, ILSE DE LOOZE (Dpt. Physics and astronomy) and LARS CHATROU (DpT. Biology) introduce you into the world of astronomy and botany. Two disciplines, two paths, two scientists. What have been their inspirations and challenges? What are their plans and ultimate scientific dreams? Meet them and find out in this dubbel interview!

STARRING: Ilse De Looze (Dpt. Physics and Astronomy) whose prime focus is to unravel the mystery of the origin of the dust grains, the sources that produce interstellar dust; and Lars Chatrou (Dpt. Biology) working on systematics and evolution of Annonaceae, a family which is an excellent proxy for the evolution of tropical rainforest.
