Research Topics

  • Investigating the dynamical interaction of galactic nuclei including the orbital evolution and growth of supermassive black holes after a galaxy merger with high resolution numerical simulations
  • Developing a semianalytic chemodynamical model of the Milky Way disc on the basis of an evolutionary scenario and large observational catalogues like the SDSS/SEGUE and the RAVE data base
  • Investigating the dynamical evolution of open clusters in the tidal field of the Milky Way including detailed models of individual clusters analytically and with the help of star-by-star simulations
