About me

I am a theoretical physicist with a broad interest in many fields of physics. During my studies I specialised in the theory of general relativity and its application to our universe while I majored in astrophysics. I have been working in solar physics since 2005. My expertise includes plasma and flare physics where I dealt with electron propagation and acceleration.
