Current research focus:

My research is focused on ultrafast diffraction imaging and spectroscopy of nanoscale systems with soft and hard X-rays.


In the KFS, I will stand up for:

  • increasing the visibility of research with synchrotrons and FELS in our society
  • fostering diversity in our community
  • pushing for federal risk funding for innovative research with  synchrotrons and FELS
  • advertising investment into the long term success of young scientists, supported by early scientific independence and tenure-track positions
