I'm a postdoc in the Infrared Group at the Max Planck Institute for extraterrestrial Physics in Garching, Germany. Before that I have been a postdoc at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, USA, and a PhD student at the Max Planck Institute for Astronomy in Heidelberg, Germany.

My research focuses on the interstellar medium and star formation process in nearby galaxies. I use telescopes observing in the radio, millimeter, and infrared to analyze the properties of gas and dust in galaxies. I try to understand how from this widespread reservoir gas dense clouds form, how stars form within these clouds, and what stellar feedback effects have on the gas. You can find more details on particular topics that I'm working on listed on my Research page. All my publications are available via links on the Publications page.
