Welcome to my personal homepage

I am a Post Doc at the Anton Pannekoek Institute for Astronomy at the University of Amsterdam. My research is related to 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 (Beuchert et al., 2017b) at milliarcsecond resolution, which enable a detailed study of parsec-scale jet physics.

  • X-ray studies of Seyfert Galaxies

    I am interested in the innermost absorbing structures of Seyfert galaxies, which me and my collaborators have been studying using time-resolved X-ray spectroscopy for example in NGC 3227 (Beuchert et al., 2015). Besides using data of all available X-ray observatories, this study emphasizes the importance of deep investigations of available multi-wavelength information. Also, I have been using the relxill model family to describe relativistic reflection in presence of strong gravity in a self-consistent lamp-post geometry, for example in NGC 4151 (Beuchert et al., 2017a).

  • Blazars in the hard X-rays

    INTEGRAL comprises full data coverage of the whole sky in the hard X-rays since the year 2000. I have been extracting and interpreting data of the instruments IBIS, JEM-X, and SPI for blazars of the TANAMI sample and selected X-ray binaries.
