Research interests

I am working in theoretical plasma physics, with special focus on relativistic laser-plasma interaction.
Of special interest to me are

  • Plasma-based photonic structures
  • Amplification of short, relativistic laser pulses in plasma via stimulated Raman and Brillouin processes,
  • Radiation damping in ultra-relativistic laser-plasma interaction,
  • Dynamics and stability of solitary structures in laser-plasma interactions,
  • Laser pulse self-compression via plasma non-linearities,
  • Numerical simulations of Maxwell-Fluid and Maxwell-Vlasov models.



I enjoy teaching, even though when properly done it will consume a lot of time. I am particularly happy that
my lectures Numerical Simulations I/II found such a good resonance amongst the students, that I was eventually
given a teaching award from the university in 2014. Thank you to all the students who put my nomination for
this forward and supported it. You can find more about the award following this link (in german).
