Miha Cernetic

After completing my BSc in Physics in Ljubljana I was extremely fortunate that my, at that point nonexistant, academic path crossed with Alexander Shapiro at the Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research in Göttingen. With his guidance I was able progress fast, publish a paper and attend many international conferences while doing the Physics Master's at the University of Göttingen and most importantly, have fun while doing it.

Research Interests
