I am an Emmy Noether group leader at Heidelberg University (ARI/ZAH), interested in studying ISM physics, galaxy formation and evolution. I have also worked on the detailed study of the star formation history and gas content of void galaxies. My current projects study the physics of the ISM in nearby galaxies on physically resolved ~50pc scales using optical IFU observations.

Much of my work is carried out 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.

I currently have a PhD position availble on the topic of "Quantifying feedback from stellar winds and supernovae in nearby galaxies". Please feel free to contact me with questions, and submit an application through the Heidelberg IMPRS school
