I am a trained geographer working in the field of geochronology and Data Science. I spent my undergraduates at the University of Bayreuth (Germany), where I obtained degrees in geography and economics. I continued in Bayreuth and completed my PhD in natural sciences in 2013. For my first postdoc, I moved to the Justus-Liebig-University of Gießen (Germany), before I joined the luminescence group at the IRAMAT-CRP2A (Université Bordeaux Montaigne, France) in 2014. I arrived at Aberystwyth University on the first day of 2020 to start my Marie Sklodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship.
With a strong background in geography and geomorphology, my research aims at the recognition of rapid environmental changes and their impact on ancient and modern societies. To temporally constrain events and phases, I apply luminescence dating techniques, which I try to push beyond accepted limits by developing new approaches and methods. More recently, my focus shifted towards data science in a geoscientific context of analysing and modelling chronological data.
At Aberystwyth University, my research will be dedicated to chronological reference datasets and sites to improve the accuracy and precision of luminescence-based chronologies. For data analysis and modelling, I use the statistical programming environment R.
