I am a Helmholtz Young Investigator Group Leader at the Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics (IPP), where I work on antimatter containment fields, as well as schemes for combining the antimatter with matter in new and interesting ways. In my professional “spare time”, I do things like lecturing, organizing American Physical Society Division of Plasma Physics Student Days (which I jump-started during my years on the Committee for the COncerns of studeNts aNd Early Career scienTists) and as much other outreach and education as I can fit in.

Previously, I worked as a postdoc at Forschungs-Neutronenquelle Heinz Maier-Leibnitz (part of the Technische Universität München), funded via an international collaboration with the Surko Group (located at UCSD, about 9674 km away) and before that as a Helmholtz Postdoc at IPP. My graduate work was in Applied Physics at Caltech, as a member of the Bellan Plasma Group.

I can be reached by e-mail at [my first name]@[domain name], should you have any questions or comments about my work, be interested in a copy of one of my talks or posters, or otherwise wish to contact me.

Thank you for stopping by!

I don’t have a beard to stroke, so I tap my nose when I ponder things. Doesn’t everyone?
