About me

Hello, I'm Ole. I'm an astrophysicist working in the field of X-ray astronomy. I studied physics and did my PhD at the Friedrich-Alexander Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (Germany) and am now a postdoctoral researcher at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics in Cambridge, USA.

In my free time I like to do outdoor activities. Climbing, parkour, surfing and running belong to my interests but I'm always excited to try out new things. I also like shooting with my analog film camera.

Stories of a climber


Ever since I've been climbing. This passion brought me to many places. From Germany, the Alps, Yosemite in the USA, Southern Africa, Iceland, the Himalayas and South East Asia. I love adventures - the bigger, the better.
