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.

BSc: Protoplanetary disks

Bachelor’s project: An investigation into the correlation between CO and H2O emission in protoplanetary disks (2015)

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.

PhD: The MICADO Atmospheric Dispersion Corrector

Quantification of the expected residual dispersion of the MICADO Near-IR imaging instrument (2020)

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.

More to come in the future…

  • Master research project: Quantifying the wavefront error budget of the MICADO ADC using power spectral density analysis
  • Geometric distortions of MICADO
  • Impact of wavefront errors on the astrometric performance of MICADO
  • And other future work
