Who I amI was born on 12. August 1972 in Wetzlar, the town of optics. I grew up with an older sister and an older brother in a home full of interest in natural science and technology. I have been married since 2005.
As a physicist I am with the research & developoment department of a medium-sized company, and I am responsible for intellectual property and knowlegde management.
Besides job and family, I spend time with music and astronomy.
My astronomySince my childhood I have been fascinated by the Night Sky. I began reading about the stars, planets and galaxies. The interest in observing was boosted one night when my father showed me Jupiter through a little telescope on a shaky tripod. Since that day I have been an amateur astronomer.
My activities cover:
My musicI love listening to music - and I also love making music!
My first instrument was a flute. The next instrument was an electronic organ, which came into our home
due to my brothers interest, was the next instrument. In the early nineties I began to
discover the guitar as a new instrument. Currently I'm taking the first steps into
the world of guitar-making.
UniversityA few factors made it possible for me to study: My parents, a few jobs and the university nearby. I worked in the I. Physical Institute in the field of solid state physics. More specifically, I used "optically detected magnetic resonance" which combines optical methods such as absorption or photo-luminescence with electon spin resonance. It allows to determine the properties and microscopic shape of defects in the lattice such as donors, acceptors, a.s.o.
