I'm a PhD student based at the University Observatory of the Ludwig-Maximilians-University (LMU) in Munich/Germany. I'm working with Barbara Ercolano, Thomas Preibisch & Giovanni Picogna on X-ray driven photoevaporation in protoplanetary discs and how it shapes the architecture of exoplanet systems. I am also very interested in using astrochemistry as a tool, especially in the context of star and planet formation!
I am part of the priority program 'Exploring the Diversity of Extrasolar Systems' (DFG SPP1992) as well as the Research Unit 'Planet Formation Witnesses and Probes: Transition Disks' (FOR 2634/1) recently established by the German Research Foundation.
