Hei!

Welcome to my (new) homepage.

About me

Well, I am Max. Born & raised in Germany where I also completed my undergraduate studies – in Berlin, specifically. I did my PhD at the Institute of Theoretical Astrophysics in Oslo, Norway.

Currently, I am a Hubble fellow/postdoc at UCSB working with Siang Peng Oh.

In my free time I like to go hiking, travelling and have some beers with friends (ideally but not necessarily all at the same time!).

Probably the best way to see a complete list of my publications is at SAO/NASA ADS or on the arXiv.

My Work

In a nutshell: I am a theoretical astrophysicist who worked mainly on modified gravity, Lyman-alpha observables, and small-scale (magneto-)hydrodynamic simulations.

Generally, I like to work on the interface between observers and theorists. This involves, e.g., numerical simulations & modeling.

More details about my work can be found in my publications and by clicking on the images below.

Material

During some projects I assembled some data or made some movies which might be interesting to others.
