Computer Science Student at RWTH Aachen University, Research/Operations at OurSky


Computer science student at RWTH Aachen University and amateur astronomer with a private observatory in Germany. Outside of working for OurSky, my research encompasses variable star and exoplanet photometry, precision astrometry, and stellar multiplicity; recent work includes automation and continued operation of research telescopes in Chile for robotic interferometry observations, as well as development of astronomy software.
