I am a McDonnell Center Postdoctoral Fellow at Washington University in St. Louis. Before I moved to the United States, I did my PhD with Prof. Jörn Wilms of the Dr. Karl Remeis observatory in Bamberg and Prof. Matthias Kadler of the Astronomy department at the University of Würzburg.
My work mainly focuses on the most extreme type of active galactic nuclei (AGN), so-called blazars. I study these objects using multi-wavelength data in order to understand the underlying physical processes responsible for the strong variability they are showing.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my dog Amos, and being outside in nature and going hiking, especially in the mountains. I am a big fan of good SciFi shows and novels, and also a huge music enthusiast. I drink tea, not coffee!
