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; interaction of stars with the accretion disc of a supermassive black hole in galactic nuclei
  • Developing a semianalytic chemodynamical model of the Milky Way disc on the basis of an evolutionary scenario and large observational catalogues like the astrometric Gaia catalogue, the photometric Gaia, SDSS, 2MASS data, and the spectroscopic data of APOGEE, RAVE, GES
  • 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
