I am a scientist at the Max Planck Institute for Solar System Reserch in the department of solar and stellar interiors. I am interested in computational helioseismology which includes in particular

  • the development of forward models: how do waves propagate in the solar interior?
  • the resolution of the inverse problem: knowing the measurements of seismic waves at the solar surface, reconstruct perturbations in the solar interior.

More information about my projects can be found on my summary or in the publications where the links to the papers are given. The different ways to contact me are given below.
