“Physics is like sex: sure, it may give some practical results, but that’s not why we do it.” – Richard P. Feynman

Due to my general interest in almost everything that is, or is related to, physics; I decided to study physics back in 2001. After about four years of broad physics education during my master degree studies mainly at Humboldt-University Berlin and the Niels Bohr Institute, I decided to write my master thesis on Elementary Particle Physics at the Niels Bohr Institute.

The obviously obvious decision to continue in this field brought me to DESY to write my graduation thesis, which I defended 12th July 2010.

After about three and a half years as a postdoc at the Niels Bohr Institute in Copenhagen, I now lead a junior research group as lecturer (Akademischer Rat) at LMU Munich. I am currently working …

  • on searches for long-lived heavy charged particles in ATLAS,
  • in the ATLAS Monte Carlo production team,
  • as co-convener of the ATLAS Exotics subgroup for Unconventional signatures and Exotic Higgs searches,
  • on various outreach projects.

From April 2015 to March 2016 I was co-convener of the ATLAS SUSY subgroup for R-parity violating and long-lived signatures.
