About me


I am a staff member in the Galaxies and Cosmology department at the Max Planck Institute for Astronomy (MPIA) in Heidelberg, Germany.


Research Group “Galaxy Structure & Dynamics


The research in my group focuses on understanding the dynamical structure and evolution of stellar systems. In nearby galaxies and stellar clusters, we look for the `fossil record' of their formation by constructing realistic dynamical models that fit their photometric and spectroscopic observations in detail. The latter include integral-field spectroscopy, observed motions and chemical properties of individual stars, as well as (strong) gravitational lensing observations.
