Head of the Group

As head of the group I would like to introduce myself a bit. A couple of things you can learn from my CV below. I like doing physics, because sometimes it is like solving a mystery and sometimes it is also super creative in coming up with new ideas and possiblities which nobody has though about before. I also like traveling and meeting  people and physics is a beautiful common ground to do that.

As head of the group, my aim is to support students in finding and nurturing their strengths, so they can shine in their best way. This will allow the group to do fascinating physics, pursue our research goals and communicate our findings to our peers and everybody else who is interested in physics. This has brought us to being an internationally highly recognized group in physics.

If you are a student or researcher interested in working with us, do not hesitate to drop me an email.
