I am a Presenter and Science Communicator at
Supernova, the Planetarium and Visitor Center of
Southern Observatory (ESO) in Garching near München
As Science Communicator, I am also keen in giving public talks, Science-Slams, and more beyond my assignment at ESO. Feel invited to contact me when interested. My key messages are not only related to the vastness and fascination of space from a scientist's point of view. I do also broach the issue of our very own Earth, our only home and immediate environment. As astronomer and science communicator, I am keen to support researchers from other related disciplines such as Climate and Earth Sciences. I am doing so by providing different perspectives to the same issues.
Before, I have been a postdoctoral researcher at the Anton Pannekoek Institute for Astronomy (University of Amsterdam) and a PhD student at the Dr. Remeis Observatory in Bamberg (Germany), part of the Erlangen Centre for Astroparticle Physics.
At ESO, I have the unique chance to bridge between ongoing cutting-edge research and the public and stay involved in several international research projects. My research interests include black holes and neutron stars, their environment, energy budgets, as well as their inflows and outflows.
