I will host the seminar "The plasma universe" (MVSem). Please see Lectures for further details.

Research area

My research covers plasma and high energy astrophysics. This contains Active Galactic Nuclei, transport of cosmic rays and nonthermal plasmas. In this context I am also interested in kinetic turbulence and plasma instabilities
My main method are numerical simulation e.g. Particle-in-Cell codes, but also Vlasov methods and many more.
A more detailed description of my research can be found here. More insight into

I am also a member of the KATRIN collaboration. I am doing plasma simulations for the tritium source. Der KATRIN-Papagei


If you are interested to write a Bachelor or Masters thesis in this area, or you first would like to inform yourself, please write me an email or have a look here.


By appointment via email.
