About Me

I'm a fourth year Astronomy Ph.D. student at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut. I work with Professor Frank van den Bosch on empirically modelling the galaxy-halo connection in large-scale structure surveys. In particular, I am interested in the kinematics of satellite galaxies, galaxy clustering and galaxy assembly bias. Additionally, I'm an active contributor to the open-source halotools project.

Before coming to Yale, I completed my bachelor's degree at the Free University of Berlin. Afterwards, I obtained a master's degree from the University of Heidelberg. I also participated in a half-year exchange program at University of California, Santa Barbara and a one-year exchange program at the Chinese University of Hong Kong.

From January to June 2017 I was a Graduate Fellow at the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP) in Santa Barbara.
