Academic interests

Solar physics, stellar and planetary atmospheres, hydrodynamics, planet formation, radiative heat transport, plasma physics, statistical quantum mechanics

 

Background

I have obtained both my M.Sc. (thesis titled "Stellar model atmospheres of late spectral type stars") and Ph.D. (thesis titled "Planet formation. The roles of pebble accretion, radiative and convective energy transport") in the Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen in Denmark.  Apart of computational astrophysics, in my "free time", I like doing observational astronomy, I have participated in the MiNDSTEp collaboration, searching for exoplanets using the gravitational microlensing technique with the Danish 1.54m telescope in La Silla, Chile.
