Biographical details

ALL PUBLICATIONS available --> here <-- (better than the list under this Bio)

Before I got a PhD in the Max Plank Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics (affiliated to the Technical University of Munich), and my advisor in MPE was Jochen Greiner and partially Marco Ajello from SLAC/KIPAC. While working for the Max Planck Society I was a student in the International Max Planck Research School (IMPRS).

Research interests

My research interests are Gamma-ray Bursts and Active Galactic Nuclei. I am a Research Associate in the University of Sydney, at the Sydney Institute for Astronomy (SIfA). where I work with Tara Murphy and her group. I am also member of the ARC Centre of Excellence for All-Sky Astrophysics (CAASTRO) and the Astronomical Society of Australia (ASA).
