- Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Geophysics
I am a planetary scientist and my research focuses on geophysics, geodesy and scientific instrumentation for future space missions. I received my M.S. degree in physics from the Free University Berlin, Germany in 2013 and I completed my Ph.D. at the Institute for Geodesy and Geoinformation Science, TU Berlin, Germany in 2018. My thesis on tidal interactions across the Solar System was completed in collaboration with the Institute of Planetary Research at the German Aerospace Center (DLR). I am currently a Postdoc at the Department of Geophysics at Stanford University. I am a Co-Investigater of the REASON (Radar for Europa Assessment and Sounding: Ocean to Near-surface) instrument on the Europa Clipper mission. I am further affiliated with the BepiColombo Laser Altimeter (BELA) on the BepiColombo mission, and the Ganymede Laser Altimeter (GALA) on the Jupiter Icy Moons Explorer (JUICE). My current research is on tidal interactions of bodies in our Solar System, ice geophysics, as well as radar and laser geodesy.
