    SCIENTIFIC CAREER

    June 2010 to now                             Postdoctoral fellowship, CERN, Geneva, Switzerland

    Coordination of installation and commissioning of a >50MW high-power rf test station project for 12GHz high-gradient electron accelerating structures: Started with unassembled, untested prototype components from various manufacturers and finished with a fully working, automatic operating and low maintenance test stand running above its design parameters. Responsible for all control and interlock systems integration and tests. Leading role in successful recuperation and recommissioning of an externally built prototype klystron after design related failures. Now responsible for operation of the full test stand and test data analysis including regular status report on testing and commissioning to management and scientific community.

    Development of a compact, low level rf system and integrated control solution for future test-stands using state of the art digital signal processing. General consulting for future test-stand design.
