I am a postdoc at the Max Planck Institute for Astronomy in Heidelberg, interested in studying ISM physics, galaxy formation and evolution. My PhD thesis focused on the detailed study of the star formation history and gas content of void galaxies. I am currently studying in detail the physics of the ISM in nearby galaxies on physically resolved scales using optical IFU observations. My recent work has been done within the PHANGS collaboration. As survey scientist, I am also involved in planning an optical IFU survey of the local group, the Local Volume Mapper (LVM), part of SDSS-V.

My work is funded by the DFG priority program Physics of the Interstellar Medium as part of the Reach of Stars project. See all my papers on arXiv and ADS.
