Jouni Kainulainen

Assistant Professor at Astronomy and Plasmaphysics

Jouni Kainulainen’s research focuses on how new stars are born in the Milky Way and what is the life-cycle of the interstellar medium. The goal of his research is to understand the physical processes that determine where, when, and how new stars form in galaxies like the one we live in.
Jouni Kainulainen leads an ERC-grant supported research group that addresses these questions with the help of both observational data and theoretical work.
