Observing ongoing planet formation

In this talk, I will briefly review the quest for observing planets in their formation stages, and present a method that can provide protoplanetary detections and measurement of their mass. I will show preliminary results from our recent ALMA long baseline observations of the gas kinematics around candidate circum-planetary discs, and continuum observations of a particular system with distinct ring structure. The talk will finish by discussing what these observation tell us about the physics of planet formation and how they can inform current theories.
