I successfully defended my PhD thesis (summa cum laude) in June 2017 at the Technische Universität Berlin, with the title "Exploring Alien Skies: Exoplanetary atmospheric detection with ground-based transmission spectroscopy". More details are given in the home page and you can read/download the entire thesis here.

PhD thesis

I completed my Master's degree at the Freie Universität Berlin, writing my thesis at the German Aerospace Agency (DLR), with Prof. Heike Rauer, where I continued with my Doctoral studies. I obtained my Bachelor's degree at Clare College, Cambridge University, where I studied the Natural Sciences tripos and specialised in Astronomy & Astrophysics in my final year at the Institute of Astronomy (IoA). After this stage I took a few years away from science in the industry.
