This page provides a chronological overview of the various science related projects I’ve worked on. The titles link to a page with a more detailed discussion and direct links to the work. There will be more in the future, as I’m not yet ready to publish some of the topics in the list down below.
PhD: The MICADO Atmospheric Dispersion Corrector
A conference proceeding where I investigate how wavefront errors affect the location of the PSF centroid as a function of field position. I then relate how this might impact the astrometric performance of the MICADO instrument.
The first publication related to my PhD research topic goes into the sources of chromatic dispersion and how much of that is corrected by the MICADO Atmospheric Dispersion Corrector.
Using ray tracing, I investigated how wavefront errors affect the astrometric performance of MICADO. This MSc research project was supervised by Dr. Willem Jellema.
BSc: Protoplanetary disks
My first taste of real science. An investigation into a relationship between CO and H2O emission line flux in protoplanetary disks, supervised by Prof. Dr. Inga Kamp.
More to come in the future…
