In 2008, René Liseau came to Chalmers from Stockholm University, where he held the professorship in Astronomical Space Research. Being the professor of Radio Astronomy his workplace is located at Onsala Space Observatory. However, his research is not limited to one spectral domain but exploits data obtained over the entire electromagnetic spectrum. Major interests include the physics of the Interstellar Medium and of star and planet formation. His main goal is the realization of a space mission that searches for Life outside the solar system, conceptually known as Darwin/TPF.
