Field of work

My scientific background is theoretical physics with applications in astrophysics, plasma physics, and solid-state physics. The common thread of my research interests is the properties of complex systems with many components. My PhD was about nuclear reactions in stars. Afterward, I worked on diagnostic methods for high-energy plasmas and structural properties of dusty plasmas. During the last few years, I have been working on data-driven energy system analysis and FAIR data. My analysis tools comprise computer programs and stochastic data analysis.
