Living Our Environment

As (astro)physicists we have the unique opportunity to see our planet from a different, more distant point of view. Earth and our limited time on this planet is like a gift. It fulfills me with joy to climb mountains and rocks with my own hands and feet, while crossing a manifold of witnesses of that gift. Below, I share a few of the most meaningful moments I experienced.
For me, enjoying became only one side of the medal. In fact, sooner or later it will be hard to enjoy a nature that is undergoing rapid change. I also see it as my responsibility as (astro)physicist to take action and discuss climate change and sustainability during public talks or in blog posts. Climate change is a tremendously complex issue that needs to be communicated in an understandable but accurate way in order to win the trust of the community and start to act as a community. A great opportunity to act as individual is provided by the "Bergwaldprojekt e.V.".

Arts and Illumination

My mother, Hermia Szabó-Beuchert (1954-2005), studied arts and sculpting in Budapest. She mainly worked as an artist in Erlangen, Germany. Her heritage comprises around two thousand art pieces including paintings, drawings, sculptures, and goldsmith's art. During later years, she started collaborations to illuminate parks and buildings with her artwork. I am now taking care of her heritage and am working on making her artwork accessible again. Stay tuned and check out some samples below. While a professional homepage is underway, you can check the facebook page in the meantime. For questions, feel free to contact me.
