Astronomy @ MPIfR & AIfA



I am an astronomer at the Max Planck Institute for Radioastronomy and Argelander Institute for Astronomy in Bonn. I study compact stars; their formation, evolution and behaviour. I'm particularly interested in radio pulsars residing in binary systems.
I earned my PhD at the University of Bonn in 2013. My thesis supervisor was Michael Kramer. From 2014 to 2017 I was a Dunlap Fellow at the University of Toronto.
