I am an experimental particle physicist, working at the Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron DESY in Hamburg.
I am a member of the CMS Collaboration at the LHC, the H1 Collaboration at HERA and the Gfitter group.
I studied physics at the University of Technology in Vienna (TU Wien) where I graduated in 2007 with a thesis on theoretical nuclear physics. Afterwards I joined the Max-Planck-Institute Munich, where I worked on the H1 experiment at the HERA collider. I received my PhD from the University of Hamburg in 2011 with a thesis on jet production in deep-inelastic scattering. I was employed as a DESY Fellow until 2012, when I joined the University of Hamburg as a research associate. I became a staff scientist at DESY in 2021. My research focuses on the analysis of data from the CMS experiment at the LHC and the interpretation of measurements with the Gfitter group.
