Welcome to my home page!
I am a postdoctral fellow at the
European Southern Observatory
(ESO) Garching Headquarters in Germany.
I study the formation of high-mass stars by observing their parent molecular clouds at high angular resolution, using submm/mm/cm interferometers including ALMA, SMA, VLA, CARMA, plus space- and ground-based single dish telescopes Herschel, IRAM 30m, GBT, APEX, CSO, and KOSMA.
I spend 25% of my working time at the European ALMA Regional Center (EU ARC) for my functional work. I enjoy serving as an astronomer on duty (AoD), contact scientist (CS), and data analyst (QA2) at the EU ARC, which means I visit the ALMA site in Chile regularly, communicate with ALMA observers about updates of their observing projects, reduce fresh ALMA data right after observations, and make data products deliverable to PIs.
