Welcome to my personal homepage

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.

  • Single Dish Radio Polarimetry

    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.

  • VLBI Polarimetry of 3C 111

    Using MOJAVE data, I am also interested in the polarization signatures of 3C 111 on milliarcsecond scales, which enable a study of parsec-scale jet physics.

  • X-ray studies of Seyfert Galaxies

    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 complex dynamics of circumnuclear matter that is absorbing our direct line of sight as well as relativistic effects imprinted on numerous Seyfert spectra; see for example our recent publications on the Seyfert galaxies NGC 3227 (arXiv) and NGC 4151 (arXiv).

  • Blazars in the hard X-rays

    INTEGRAL comprises full data coverage of the whole sky in the hard X-rays since the year 2000. My field of interest includes an examination of that data for selected blazars of the TANAMI sample.
