About

I’m a researcher working in the field of high-energy astrophysics, specifically gamma-ray astronomy. High-energy photons probe the most violent phenomena in the universe and astrophysical particle accelerators in the Milky Way and other galaxies.

My studies focus on the question how high-energy particles shape their environment, from colliding wind binary systems to massive stellar clusters and starburst galaxies. I’m the head of the H.E.S.S. group at DESY, Zeuthen, member of the H.E.S.S. collaboration, and help to coordinate the Galactic science activities. One of my strong interests is in the technical development and operation of the H.E.S.S. transients system and the scientific exploitation of astrophysical transients in gamma rays. I’m also involved in the next-generation Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA).

My papers on ADS

Beside my professional interests I’m quite a music and movie nerd.
