Curriculum Vitae

Study of Physics in Tübingen (1995-2001), PhD studies in Physics: Tübingen (2001-2005). Doctoral thesis: Visualization in Relativity. Participation in the development and preparation of explanatory videos and exhibits for the Einstein exhibition in Ulm (2004) and Bern (2005). PostDoc at the Visualization Research Center of the University of Stuttgart (2006–2015). Since April 2016 at Haus der Astronomie.
