Since September 2012 I have been an ESO Chile Fellow with regular duties at Paranal Observatory. My main research interests are young stellar objects such as Herbig Ae/Be and T Tauri stars. Besides searching for extrasolar planets and (sub-)stellar companions around these stars I determine their stellar parameters and characterize their activity behaviour (photospheric phenomena, accretion) using mainly optical and NIR high-resolution spectroscopy. I am also interested in disk studies using NIR and MIR interferometric data.
