About me ...

I am a postdoctual researcher at the Landessternwarte at the University of Heidelberg working in the fields of High Energy Astrophysics and Astroparticle Physics. My research covers the investigation of gamma-ray emitting AGNs also in the multi-wavelength context.

ATel #9689 on NGC 1275

Detection of an increased activity from NGC 1275 at very-high-energy gamma rays measured with MAGIC. The preliminary analysis indicates 16% of the flux from the Crab nebula (C.U.) above 100 GeV. This implies an increase by a factor of about 5 with respect to the previously measured VHE flux from this object above the same energy threshold. VERTIAS also reported an enhanced emission, see ATel #9690.
