I am Professor of Astrophysics at the University of Zurich. My research is centred on understanding the origin and evolution of the Universe and how stars, planets and galaxies form. We often use custom built supercomputers such as our in-house constructed zBox.
I enjoy communicating science to the public through different media - my popular book “Elefanten im All” describes the history and future of life and the universe. Updated in 2014, it is now available as a softback in German. It is available from June 30th in English under the title “Elephants in Space”.
