Who am I
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. During my graduation year I started working on solar physics. After graduation I joined AIP to work on my PhD in solar physics. My expertise is in plasma and flare physics (e.g. I studied Solar Energetic Particles related topics, such as, electron propagation through plasma and electron acceleration processes).
2009-2019 Work on a Space Mission
Solar Orbiter / STIX
In 2009 I became the project scientist and project manager for AIP's contributions to ESA's Solar Orbiter mission and was significantly involved in design, manufacturing, assembly, integration and verification activities of the Spectrometer/Telescope Imaging X-Ray (STIX) instrument's Imager unit and subsystems. On July 12, 2017 STIX was successfully delivery to Airbus Defence and Space (UK).
AIP also had small contributions to the Electron Proton Telescope (EPT) within the Energetic Particle Detector (EPD) instrument suite.
