Study of physics at the university
Fridericiana in Karlsruhe.
Diploma work in the field of nuclear and solid state physics at the Kernforschungszentrum
Karlsruhe (KfK) - now named Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT).
Thesis: "Untersuchung und Erklärung des Signalverhaltens von
Flüssigkeitsionisationskammern für stark ionisierende Teilchen
und Entwicklung einer Rekombinationstheorie".
(Examination and explanation of signals from highly ionizing particles in fluid ionization
chambers and developement of a recombination theory)
At the beginning I worked in the fields of galaxy research (nearby galaxies) in X-ray astronomy
investigating data from the german X-ray satellite ROSAT.
From 1997 to 2002 works in the field of neutron stars with main emphasis on theoretical
considerations concerning the explanation of acceleration, interchange, and radiation processes of
electrons/positrons within neutron star magnetospheres.
From 2000 to 2002 examination of data from the european X-ray satellite
Analysis of all ROSAT-HRI data to arrange a complete source catalog. This catalog
is internally available at MPE since summer 2001.
Cooperation to the developement/enhancement of both analysis systems SASS and
EXSAS for the
analysis of ROSAT data.
System developer at the company
Mentz Datenverarbeitung GmbH (mdv). This company developes software for public transportation systems. My working field: Optimization algorithms to optimize schedules with regard to change relations between interconnected lines using mathematical principles.
Activity since 2006:
Freelancer in own company with the following subjects:
Software developing (PC und Web applications)
Developing of electronic components and devices (circuit design, laboratory model, production engineering)
