Projects and collaborations

At LRZ, I am working with local and international collaborators mainly on research data management (RDM), computing-infrastructure, geoscience and atmospheric science projects.

My main projects:

Projects I was involved in in the past: Teams at LRZ: Important further collaborations of mine: Past projects:

A blast from the past: my research in astrophysics

I have worked on exploding stars (supernovae, SNe) for a couple of years - more specifically, on transport phenomena of the emergent radiation:

Here you can have a look at some of that work using the NASA Astrophysics Data System:
