I study the formation and evolution of planetary systems. Using observations from (sub-)millimeter interferometers, I map the emission morphology of the gas and dust in protoplanetary disks, the birthplace of planets. I am particularly interested in extracting kinematical information about the disk, and have demonstrated how we can infer the 3D dynamical structure of the planet formation environment or detect the presence of yet unseen protoplanets, deeply embedded within their natal disk.
