I am a Research Assistant Professor at CUA, working at NASA/GSFC (Goddard Space Flight Center) on evolved stars. My scientific interests range from studying K-M giant stars, to Asymptotic Giant Branch (AGB) stars, investigating their physical properties and evolution. I am particularly interested in studying the outer atmosphere and chromosphere of cool, evolved stars using interferometric techniques, and high-resolution spectroscopic data from the Hubble Space Telescope. My research is based on data that I and others have obtained using large telescopes, such as VLTI in Chile, and space telescopes such as HST. I was a PhD student at the University of Vienna, where I graduated in October 2016.
