What have I been doing in the past?
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. Until 2019 accumulated expertise in plasma and flare physics (e.g. I studied Solar Energetic Particles related topics, such as, electron propagation through plasma and electron acceleration processes).
I was mainly 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).
The launch of Solar Orbiter is currently foreseen for
July 2017 October 2018 February 2019
- Febraury 2020.
What am I doing now?
Since 2019 I am part of the Technical Section, a service infrastructure at AIP which supports scientists with design, manufacturing, assembly and integration activities for state-of-the-art and historic instruments.
