Current research focus:

  • X-ray microscopy with nm resolution for life science applications

  • Analytical X-ray imaging (with X-ray fluorescence, XANES)

  • Instrumentation for end stations at synchrotron radiation sources

 

In the KFS, I would stand up for:


  • User-friendly big-data solutions at the facilities
  • Improved communication between facilites and users during beam time allocation (feedback system)
  • More user-oriented beamline periphery (preparation laboratories etc.)
  • Coordination of BMBF collaborative research and beamtime allocation
