Welcome

on my webpage! I'm a astrophysicist and currently employed as a researcher at the Erlangen Centre for Astroparticle Physics of the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg.
My main research concentrates on the neutrino telescope KM3NeT, which uses the sea water of the Mediterranean in order to detect neutrinos of extraterrestrial origin. Another focus of my work are accreting neutron stars. See about me for more details about my research projects. Informations about how to contact me are given on the legal page.
