I am a fellow at the European Southern Observatory (ESO) in Garching, Germany. In 2018, I completed my PhD at the Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research in Göttingen, Germany and The Open University in Milton Keynes in the UK.

I use ground photometric observations to study the physical properties and surface characteristics of comets, Trans-Neptunian objects and other small bodies in the Solar system. As part of my work at ESO, I also support the VLT operations in Paranal Observatory in Chile.

You can read more about my path in astronomy in this recent piece from the ESO Messenger.
