I joined STScI in April 2017 as a postdoctoral researcher. I am working with Antonella Nota and Elena Sabbi on combining ground-based integral field spectroscopy obtained with VLT?MUSE and high-resolution HST photometry of Galactic young massive star clusters. Before joining the institute I have obtained my PhD at the Astronomisches Rechen-Institut at the University of Heidelberg working with Eva K. Grebel.
- Evolution and fate of young massive star clusters
- Integral field spectroscopy
- Galactic young massive star clusters
Research Topics: young massive star clusters, cluster formation and evolution, radial velocities, proper motions, 3D dynamics
