Hi, I am an astronomer and instrument scientist working at the Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics in Garching, Germany.
My work focuses on observational astronomy and infrared instrumentation. In particular the advancement of high precision astrometry and optical interferometry.
I played a leading role in the design, assembly, integration, testing and commissioning of the 2nd generation VLTI instrument GRAVITY between 2008 and today.
I received two awards for my work on instrumentation:
MERAC prize 2016
