I am a PhD student at the Max Planck Institute for Astronomy in Heidelberg, Germany, working both in the ENIGMA Group of Joe Hennawi and the Milky Way Group of Hans-Walter Rix. My research focusses on analyzing the Lyman-alpha absorption lines in spectra of high-redshift quasars to study the properties of the intergalactic medium and to constrain the Epoch of Reionization. I also work on developing data-driven models to analyze stellar spectra of large spectroscopic surveys.

I am a member of the International Max-Planck Research School (IMPRS) for Astronomy at the University of Heidelberg.

I also work as an Outreach Fellow at the "Haus der Astronomie" - Center for Astronomy Education and Outreach (HdA).
