Welcome to my personal webpage. I’m a staff scientist at the University Observatory LMU Munich in the CAST- group of Prof. Andreas Burkert and a member of the PGN-group at the Max-Planck-Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics in Garching.
We investigate the structure-formation and evolution of galactic discs in the young universe. Our toolbox consists of high-resolution hydrodynamic simulations within the framework of gravitational disc instability and mock-observations. In addition to the scientific activity, I am supervising students, teaching tutorials and astrophysical lab courses, and am a substitute for the lectures of Prof. Burkert.
