Hi, I am an optical engineer and astronomer working for the European Southern Observatory in Garching, Germany.
My work focuses on instrumentation for large telescopes. I am currently working on astrophotonics and fiber-fed spectrographs.
I have played a leading role in the design, assembly, integration, testing and commissioning of the 2nd generation VLTI instrument GRAVITY.
