After I got my PhD degree at the Max-Planck-Institute
for Radioastronomy in Bonn, I stayed
for a few Postdoc years as an
Emmy-Noether Fellow at the Harvard-Smithsonian
Center for Astrophysics in Cambridge/USA (CfA) in the
Submillimeter Array Group (SMA). From September 2005 to September 2009, I was the Head of an Emmy-Noether Research Group at the MPIA dedicated
to study the
earliest stages of massive star
formation employing the
exciting techniques of (Sub)millimeter Interferometry. Since then, I am
staff member of the Planet and Star Formation Department at the MPIA.
In 2013, I got appointed Associate Professor at the University of
Heidelberg. Then in 2015, I received an ERC consolidator grant.
