    Welcome to my Homepage

    I am working in the Solar Corona in 3D Group (SoCo3D) at the Max Planck-Institute for Solar System Research (MPS) . I wrote my Diploma Thesis and Doctoral Thesis at the Lehrstuhl für Theoretische Weltraum- und Astrophysik at the Ruhr Universität Bochum. After finishing my thesis in 1998, I worked at the Max Planck-Institut für Aeronomie in D-37191 Katlenburg-Lindau, Germany (1998-2000) and in the in the Solar Theory Group at the University of Saint Andrews, Scotland (2000-2002).
