About me

I have a Bachelor of Science degree and a Master of Science degree in Astronomy from the University of Vienna. I obtained my PhD in Physics at the Berlin Institute of Technology with the thesis “Numerical Investigations on the Link between the 60Fe Anomaly in a Deep-Sea Ferromanganese Crust and the Formation of the Local Bubble”. Currently, I am holding a position as PostDoc at the Berlin Institute of Technology.

Astrophysical fluid mechanics

As almost all of the baryonic Universe is fluid, the study of how fluids flow and under which circumstances they achieve equilibrium (i.e., do not flow) is central to modern astrophysics. In order to shed light on this fascinating and ever-evolving research area, we will derive the governing equations of fluid mechanics in their most general form in a mathematically attractive manner and show how these relations can be tailored to tackle with them specific (astrophysical) problems, including convection flows, accretion disks, extragalactic jets, stellar winds, and supernova blast waves.

Astrophysical seminar icon
Undergraduate course

Astrophysical seminar

In this course, students are expected to give a roughly 45-minute talk on selected topics, among others, from the field of the "Cosmic Matter Cycle". For this purpose, they are supervised by university teachers and assistants. Each talk is to be followed by a scientific discussion. All topics are suitable for a Bachelor's or Master's thesis.
