Supervised Bachelor/Master theses

Christopher Sobel: Development and Characterization of a Field-of-View Background Model for the High Energy Stereoscopic System (Master thesis, May 2018) ECAP-2018-012

Maximilian Schandri: Investigation of Observation Quality Parameters for H.E.S.S.-II (Master thesis, March 2018) ECAP-2018-008

My current research is focused on gamma-ray astronomy, in particular the study of Galactic sources of high-energy gamma rays. I am a member of the H.E.S.S. Collaboration and the CTA Consortium.

I am also interested in the development of open-source tools for gamma-ray astronomy. In this context, I have made some contributions to the Gammapy software package and have helped preparing the first H.E.S.S. public data release.

Previously, I have been a member of the IceCube Collaboration. During that time, I have carried out a measurement of the energy spectrum and the flavor composition of the cosmic neutrino flux observed with the IceCube experiment. For more details, check the corresponding publication or have a look into my PhD thesis.
