Life in the Cosmos
Understanding the origin and evolution of life is a multi-disciplinary universal problem ranging from astrophysics to chemistry and biology. These different aspects are often studied, separately. My talk is designed to identify cross-disciplinary research and aims at bridging potential gaps between the difference aspects of life sciences.
