Welcome! I am an astrophysicist working at the SETI Institute and NASA Ames Research Center in Mountain View, California. My research focuses on the structure and evolution of solar-type and low-mass stars using observational techniques such as asteroseismology, optical long-baseline interferometry and broadband photometry, as well as the study of exoplanets through the characterization of their host stars. The above picture is an artists impression of an exoplanet transiting in front of an oscillating star (image courtesy of Gabriel Perez Diaz, Instituto de Astrofisica de Canarias).

For my research I use data from space-based and ground-based telescopes such as KeplerCoRoTMOST and the CHARA Array. I was born and raised in Vienna, Austria, where I have received a masters degree in Astronomy from the University of Vienna in 2007. In 2008 I moved to Sydney, Australia, and earned my PhD in Astrophysics in 2011 at the University of Sydney under supervision of Tim Bedding.
