Current students
E. Manjavacas: E. Manjavacas came to MPIA to do her Ph.D. under the supervision of Prof. Thomas Henning, after a Master at la Complutense de Madrid. She is studying brown dwarfs, from their detection using wide surveys to their characterisation. RIght now she is measuring parallaxes based on imaging taken with Omega2000 camera mounted at the Calar Alto 3.5m telescope.
Former students

S. Bose: S. Bose of Oxford University, UK, came to MPIA for a Summer internship. He worked on the preliminary PanSTARRS1 proper motion catalogue to study its characteristics (accuracy, purity), with the goal of looking for wide common proper motion binaries.

S. Marsat: S. Marsat of École Polytechnique, France, stayed four months to analyse the methane imaging of UKIDSS brown dwarf candidates, previously obtained at the Calar Alto 3.5m telescope using Omega2000. We identified a dozen new T-type dwarfs. The results are partly published in a MNRAS paper. He went on studying for a Master.

C. Knight: C. Knight came from BYU, Utah, to analyse the CAFOS polarimetric data of field brown dwarfs, obtained at the Calar Alto 2.2m telescope. The analysis is on-going. She went on to finish her Bachelor studies.

J. Pitann: I supervised the Diploma (final year) project of J. Pitann, of the University of Heidelberg, on polarisation of brown dwarfs. He wrote a pipeline to reduce Wollaston-prism images and analysed FORS 1 data. The results are published in a A&A paper. He continued his work at MPIA as a Ph.D. student.

M. Voelkl: M. Voelkl of the University of Marburg for an Internship in September 2008 to search for wide binary pairs in proper motion catalogues.

C. Listowski: C. Listowski of École Normale Supérieure, Paris, came for an internship to study brown dwarf variability using spectra obtained at the SOFI near-infrared spectrograph on the ESO NTT. He went on with a Master.

J. Datson: I supervised the Diploma (final year) project of J. Datson, of the University of Heidelberg. She studied spectra obtained at the Calar Alto 3.5m telescope using MOSCA in multi-object spectroscopic mode.
