I started my physics diploma studies in Goettingen 2003, and finished my studies in theoretical physics in summer 2009. Looking for a PhD position, I started doing astrophysics in 2010 at the University of Goettingen, and finished my PhD in summer 2013. After that I continued as a postdoc at the University of Goettingen, and moved to the Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research in 2016.
My research focuses on stellar rotation, differential rotation, and stellar activity. I mostly work with Kepler/K2 data, but also study ground-based long-term observations of stellar brightness variations.
