Key aspects of activity
- administration of computing and storage facilities
- HPC and HLRN consulting
- research in numerical astrophysics
- teaching in physics and astrophysics
I studied physics at the Johannes Kepler University Linz, the University of Leicester, and the Universtiy of Vienna. In 2004, I received my PhD from the Max Planck Institute for Astrophysics and the Technical University of Munich. My supervisor was Wolfgang Hillebrandt.
I have worked on numerical models of thermonuclear supernovae, star-forming clouds, disk galaxies, and cosmological structure formation. In particular, I am interested in all aspects of astrophysical turbulence and in code development for high performance computing. For more information see my reserach projects.
