Research activities

My main field of interest is neutrino physics, in particular neutrino astronomy. I am a member of the ANTARES and KM3NeT collaborations. In ANTARES, I am a member of the experiment’s steering committee and institute board. My task is to coordinate the development and maintenance of data analysis tools such as e.g. algorithms for event reconstruction or software packages for calibration, visualization, simulation and data productions. In addition, I co-coordinate the astrophysics working group. In KM3NeT, I serve as a member of the conference and outreach committee and work mainly on ORCA (Oscillation Research with Cosmics in the Abyss), a megaton water Cherenkov detector in the Mediterranean Sea. The goals of the ECAP working group are to determine the ordering of the neutrino mass eigenstates and to demonstrate the appearance of tau neutrinos in the atmospheric neutrino flux.

Previously, I worked in heavy-ion and hadron physics as a member of the HADES collaboration at TUM and GSI/FAIR, Darmstadt, and in computational astrophysics at MPA, Garching.
