Dr. Kay Graf

My research focuses on the area of neutrino astronomy, trying to understand the sources of Cosmic Rays and the highest-energetic processes in the universe. This is performed as member of the KM3NeT and ANTARES collaborations; both neutrino detectors in the Mediterranean deep sea.

Within the KM3NeT collaboration, I am coordinating the computing and software working group and am – in  this function – member of the project’s steering committee since 2013. During his term as chair of the KM3NeT Institute board, I substitute Uli Katz representing ECAP in the board. In addition, I am general manager of ECAP and the Physics Institute at the Friedrich-Alexander University.
