2014, Ph.D Astronomy, University of Geneva, thesis: "High Precision Photometry of Exoplanet Transits and Occulatations - Insights on Hot Atmospheres form Ground-based Optical and near-IR Observations", supervisor: D.Queloz (Univ. Geneva)
2009, M.Sc Astronomy, University of Vienna, thesis: "Search for Additional Bodies with the Transit Timing Method", supervisors: G. Handler (Univ. Vienna) and C. Afonso (Max Planck Institute for Astronomy)
2007, B.Sc., University of Vienna, thesis: "Hot Jupiters", supervisor R.Dvorak (Univ. Vienna)
I dedicate my scientific career to the study of planets outside our Solar System, with a focus on transiting exoplanets, their diversity and composition. I have been contributing to both, planet discovery via transit surveys, and the study of planetary atmospheres with modern telescope facilities, most prominently the ESO/VLT.
