Born August 1981 in Germany and of German nationality. Not married, no children.
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.
June 2007 to June 2010 Doctoral student, CERN
Title of thesis: “Comparative studies of high-gradient rf and dc breakdowns”, academic support by RWTH Aachen University, Aachen, Germany. Detailed experimental and theoretical study of optical phenomena occurring from very high electric and electromagnetic fields on metallic surfaces. This includes rf and dc breakdowns at different frequencies, optical transition radiation from dark current electrons and multipactor events.
Gained experience in optical diagnostics, plasma physics and low- and high-power rf. Responsible for operation of drive-beam based production of high-power rf in CTF3 complex at CERN during 30GHz accelerating structure tests. Further experiments at 12GHz conducted at SLAC, Stanford, USA.
January 2007 to May 2007 Scientific assistant at 3.Phys.Institut B, RWTH Aachen
Installation of a lab for the development of acoustic neutrino detection sensors for the IceCube experiment. Development of electronics and validation of new piezoelectric materials for acoustic neutrino detection in ice.
June 2001 to January 2007 Academic studies, RWTH Aachen
Studies of physics at the RWTH Aachen University, Aachen, Germany. Specialization in experimental high-energy physics. Finalization of studies with the diploma thesis “Das E166 Experiment: Kalibration des Kalorimeters”. Extended stays at SLAC and DESY, Hamburg, Germany for conduction of necessary experiments with electron and positron beams.
