Ewine F. van Dishoeck is a full professor of astronomy at Leiden University, the Netherlands, where she received her PhD in 1984 cum laude. From 1984-1990, she held positions at Harvard, Princeton and Caltech before moving back to Leiden in 1990. As of 2008, she is also an external scientifi c member of the Max Planck Institut für Extraterrestrische Physik in Garching. Her research group focuses on the astrochemical evolution from interstellar clouds to planet-forming disks and the importance of molecules as diagnostics of the star- and planet formation process, using observations at submillimeter and infrared wavelengths. She holds many national and international science policy functions, including member of the ALMA Board. She has received various honors and awards for her research.
