My research is centered on

  • Formation of High-Mass Stars
  • Astrochemistry
  • Formation of Molecular Clouds

particularly on the modeling of observing data.  I am Project leader of Project C3 in the  SFB 956, involved in projects A4 and A6, was co-I of Herschel/HIFI and have been involved there in the GT KPs HEXOS and CHESS.  From 1997 to 2010 I have been member of various ALMA committees, among the Science Software Requirements, ESAC and ASAC and various review committees. Of particular interest are the following instruments/projects

While in the past I have used

which still have a lot of interesting and unreduced data.

The thesis topics I offer can be found on the job page.

Group publications are found here.
