My main research field is the evolution of galaxies, with a focus on the evolution of the properties of their gas component over the course of cosmic time.
I am part of the AtLAST design study team, working on the theoretical predictions for the 50m single-dish, (sub)mm telescope, to understand the formation and evolution of galaxies based on the properties of the interstellar, circumgalactic and intergalactic medium through cosmic time. For this I analyse cosmological simulations, modelling the emission of redshifted far infrared and (sub)mm emission lines, that would be observable by AtLAST.
I am also working on a project, analysing the chemical evolution of massive galaxies, where I study the integrated gas-phase metallicity and the gas-phase metallicity gradients of simulated galaxies, and how they are affected by AGN feedback.
I did my Bachelor’s and Master’s degree at the University of Vienna, early on already specialising in extra-galactic astronomy in the group of Univ.-Prof. Dipl.-Phys. Dr. Bodo Ziegler. For my Bachelor thesis I analysed the spectra of late type galaxies at intermediate redshifts, to derive their integrated gas-phase metallicities using strong line calibration methods.
For my Master thesis I studied the chemical evolution of massive early-type galaxies based on cosmological zoom-in simulations, supervised by Ass.-Prof. Dr. Michaela Hirschmann.
