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 RAMSES-code. Subsequent radiative transfer modelling with MC3D and RADMC-3D 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. See my research pages, publications and online material for further details, results and movies.
