I am post-doctoral researcher at the Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies working mainly on high-energy astrophysics in the context of supernova remnants. I helped to develop the numerical toolset RATPaC (Radiation Acceleration Transport PArallel Code) to study the acceleration of high-energetic non-thermal particles in the shock-waves succeeding supernova explosions. Further, I was involved in the very-high gamma-ray observatory VERITAS and recently joined the H.E.S.S.-collaboration.
