During my physics studies at the Technische Universität Dresden (Germany), a project at SNOLAB in Sudbury (Canada) introduced me to the field of low-background underground experiments. The project was related to HALO, a dedicated supernova-neutrino detector.
In the TU Dresden nuclear physics group I worked on the SNO+ experiment, a multi-purpose neutrino detector also located at SNOLAB. The development of a calibration source for the detector was the topic of my diploma thesis.
My research interest is focused on the experimental aspects of astroparticle physics, in particular particle detection in low-background environments.
