I am a PhD student in the group of Prof. Jörn Wilms at the Dr. Remeis Observatory, the Astrophysical institute of the University of Erlangen-Nürnberg, part of the Erlangen Centre for Astroparticle Physics (ECAP), and in the group of Prof. Matthias Kadler at the Institute for Theoretical Physics and Astrophysics of the University of Würzburg. My research mainly deals with the multi-wavelength analysis of radio-loud and radio-quiet Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN). See ADS for my publication list. To download my CV, please follow this link.
Together with the MPIfR, Bonn, I am studying the calibration of polarimetric data taken with the Effelsberg 100-m Radio Telescope in the framework of the F-GAMMA program. The large-scale polarization of 3C 111 is a key topic.
Using MOJAVE data, I am also interested in the polarization signatures of 3C 111 on milliarcsecond scales.
The X-rays allow to study the innermost structure of AGN in the ultimate vicinity of the central black hole. I am interested in the variable circumnuclear matter that is absorbing our direct line of sight. Most recently, we published the discovery of an irregular absorption event in NGC 3227 (arXiv).
