About Me

Plasma Physics first attracted my interest during my undergraduate studies and keeps exciting me ever since. Starting with my Bacherlor’s thesis, I was a part of Prof. André Melzers research group on dusty plasmas at the University of Greifswald. After six years of fruitful and fulfilling dusty plasma research encompassing a B.Sc. , M.Sc. and Ph.D. degree, I went to the Max-Planck-Institute for Plasma Physics (IPP) to work on probe diagnostics for the stellarator Wendelstein 7-X.
