I am Professor for Astronomy at the Hamburger Sternwarte (observatory), which is part of the Department of Physics of the University of Hamburg. I served as Dept. Chair from 01/2014 until 12/2015, as Deputy Dept. Chair for 3.5 years and as Managing Director of the observatory for 3 years.

My main area of research is the modeling of stellar and planetary atmospheres using computer simulations with our PHOENIX code. This is a large scale supercomputing application, my group regularily uses large parallel supercomputers that can be found in the top 10 of the world's fastest supercomputers. My CV is available as PDF file and I also have a list of publications available (PDF, infrequently updated, please use ADS for up-to-date information!). I am a member of the Lothar Collatz Center for Computing in Science (and the proposed GrK 2238) and participate in the DFG Forschergruppe 2285 "Debris Disks in Planetary Systems ", and the SFB 676. My group has often opportunities for Bachelor & Master theses in the field of theoretical and computational astrophysics, please contact me for more information.

Wissen vom Fass 2017

Am 27.04.2017 findet zum 3. Mal das "Wissen vom Fass" statt! Ich werde wieder mitmachen mit einem Vortrag zum Thema "Gibt es außerirdischen Leben?", diemsal in der Mathilde, Literatur & Café am Grindel.


Im SoSe 2017 halte ich die Vorlesung "Einführung in die Astronomie I" (für Studierende im Studiengang BSc. Physik ab dem 3. Fachsemester) und die Vorlesung "Sterne, Galaxien und Kosmologie" für Studierende aller Fakultäten und die Spezialvorlesung Theorie und Praxis von Phoenix (Anmeldung und Vorkenntnisse erforderlich!).
