In the past few decades exoplanets have been discovered around more than a thousand stars, many of which are very different to the Solar System in terms of the types of planets they harbour and the distances between planets and the host star. The aim of Rik van Lieshout's research is to increase our understanding of circumstellar dust, as studying dust grains that orbit at extremely close distances to a host star can tell us a lot about exoplanetary systems.
