Fields of Interest:
Prebiotic Molecules, Simulation, Autocatalysis, Reaction Networks

Short summary of current research:
I'm an astrophysics PhD student at the Max Planck Institute for Astronomy in Heidelberg. My main research interest is in the fields of astrobiology and the origin of life. I did simulations of tidal acceleration vectors in our solar system and exosystems to understand better planetary habitability due to tidal heating. Now, I do simulations about the formation of prebiotic molecules in the parent body planetesimals of carbonaceous chondrites. Further, I plan to model autocatalytic reaction networks and hope to understand better how non-living matter became life.




Please note: in August, the STRUCTURES Office will be on summer break.
In all matters, please contact us via email. We will take care of it as soon as possible.
