Academic interests

  • Noble gases in the environment: Application as tracers, mainly in CCS (Carbon Capture and Storage), in hydraulic reservoir stimulation and air-water gas exchange.
  • Gas analysis on-site or in laboratories using mass spectrometry and cryogenics for noble gas isotopes and carbon isotopes.
  • Environmental and Natural Resource Economics.


  • Since 2018: PhD Research Fellow. University of Oslo (ICO2P-Project).
  • MSc Physics (2018) University of Heidelberg. Thesis title: Continuous Gas Measurements to Analyse Air-Water Exchange and Fracking.
  • BSc Physics (2015) University of Heidelberg. Thesis: Development of a Reflective Slope Gauge for the Investigation of wind driven Water Waves.
