I am working as a Postdoctoral Fellow with Jeremy Mould within the
"Centre for Astrophysics and Supercomputing (CAS)"
at the "Swinburne University of Technology" in Melbourne (Australia).
Before that, I was working within Andi Burkert's
group at the Max-Planck-Institute
for Extraterrestrial Physics in Garching and the University Observatory in Munich.
I am especially interested in the distribution and the dynamics of gas
and dust in nearby galactic nuclei.
To study this, we use hydrodynamic simulations with the help of the
PLUTO-code as well as the
Subsequent radiative transfer modelling with
enables us to derive observable quantities like spectral energy distributions and
surface brightness distributions and visibility information, which can
be compared to observations.
Recently I have also become interested in the Galactic Centre of the Milky Way and high-redshift galaxy formation.
