About me

(made with Scimeter)

I am performing scientific research in theoretical astrophysics and theoretical nuclear physics, currently mainly at the University of Basel and the University of Hertfordshire. Additionally, I am a patent expert at the Swiss Federal Institute for Intellectual Property. My detailed Curriculum Vitae is on its own page. More about my research results and some computer tools I developed, can be found on my scientific website.


Tell me about mobility! Although by now I spent most of my work life in Switzerland, I have experience living in various countries and moving between different places (in addition to science conference travel). The map above needs some updating, though. It mainly misses my 3 years in England 2013-2015, where I was Reader of Astrophysics (associate professor) at the University of Hertfordshire. In late 2015 I quit the teaching focussed job and started working part-time at the Swiss Federal Institute for Intellectual Property to support my continuing scientific research and my life. Currently I am still Adjunct Lecturer at the University of Basel and Visiting Research Fellow at the University of Hertfordshire.

Whatever lamps on Earth or Heaven may shine
Are portions of one power which is mine.

As everybody else, I am always looking for science funding:
