Research interest:      

  • (neutron-induced) production of radionuclides and their scientific and medical applications
  • Neutron-induced fission
  • Nuclear spectroscopy with neutron-induced reactions
  • Neutron-based analysis methods (PGAA, NAA, NDP, ...)
  • Radiobiology with slow neutrons


In the KFN, I would stand up for:

  • My goal is to support and communicate the wide range of applications of neutrons, especially applications that go beyond neutron scattering.
  • Efficient use and long-term perspective of German and European neutron sources
  • Promotion of teaching of neutron-based methods at universities and FHs
  • Promotion of young scientists using neutrons
