A LITTLE ABOUT ME
Born in Düsseldorf in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany, and raised in Ratingen nearby, I moved to Munich for my Bachelor's and Master's degree in physics, which I received at LMU Munich. In my Bachelor's thesis, I used hydrodynamic simulations to examine turbulence in the interstellar medium and the viability of different simulation schemes; in my Master's thesis I looked for planes of satellites galaxies in large-scale cosmological simulations, specifically in Magneticum. Both theses were written at the University Observatory in Munich, under the supervision of PD Dr Klaus Dolag. In 2019, I relocated to London to start my PhD studies at University College London, working with Prof Richard Ellis on cosmic re-ionisation and with Prof Amélie Saintonge on galaxy evolution and main-sequence scatter.
