Jungo (Brügger) Natacha, Dr.
Please give us a personal quote or a quote of a famous person (e.g. of Albert Einstein) that describes you and your life/work.
“When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.” – John Lennon
Please describe your job in only one sentence and tell us what the most important goal of this work is.
I am working on planet formation in binary stars and the main goal of my work is to get the general understanding of what have been done until now.
How did you get into this research/work field?
I was studying physics at the university of Fribourg and I was interrested in astrophysics but it was not a proposed field there so I picked a course in Bern called “Planetary physics”. There I found out that this subject was really something I wanted to know more about so I decided to move to Bern to work in this field for my master thesis.
What would be the greatest discovery you would like to see in your life time?
The understanding of the formation of the universe.
You work for the NCCR PlanetS. What do you think will the NCCR enable you to do you couldn’t do without it?
It enables to link people from different specifications that are working in the same main field and this can improve the research.
