I'm a second-year PhD student at the Hamburg Observatory and part of the excellence cluster Quantum Universe. My research interests are astrophysics on large-scales and models beyond ΛCDM. I prefer to work numerically, including all the way from new ideas for numerical schemes to the analysis of simulation data.
In my PhD project, I focus on the effects of dark matter with frequent self-interactions. N-body simulations are employed to study how self-interactions can alter the distribution of dark matter.
