I am a physicist at the Leibniz Institute for Astrophysics Potsdam (AIP) in Germany, passionate about turning instrumentation ideas and concepts into reality. My research background is in solar physics, and the first instrument I helped build is currently orbiting the Sun at close distance aboard Solar Orbiter. Through my work, I want to help us better understand the universe.

You can find me on social media (see below) or contact me where I work.
