About

I am a postdoctoral fellow in the Atmospheric, Oceanic & Planetary Physics department of the University of Oxford, working on coupling geodynamical models with atmospheric prescriptions to gain a more realistic understanding of the accretion and early evolution of terrestrial worlds.

Previously, I completed doctoral studies in planetary astro- and geophysics in the departments of Physics and Earth Sciences of ETH Zurich, Switzerland, and before that my Bachelor and Master degree in Physics at the University of Göttingen, Germany.
