Studies of physics at the University of Munich (LMU), finished 1999 with a diploma in experimental physics (nano electronics, Prof. Dr. A. Wixforth). From 1999 to 2001 manager of the development division at Vita-Technologie Deutschland GmbH (energy management systems). From 2001 to 2005 Doctorate at IMK-IFU (development and construction of the water-vapor lidar on mount Zugspitze, Prof. W. Seiler). Since 2005 employed as postdoc and working on the water-vapor lidar on Mt. Zugspitze.
