I am a postdoc in the MethaneSAT science team, focusing on retrievals of trace gas concentrations with this new sensor. Previously, I investigated spectral sizing options for the CO2Image satellite sensor during my PhD research with Professors André Butz and Bernhard Mayer at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) and LMU Munich. I also worked on CO2 retrievals from the specMACS and AVIRIS-NG airborne imaging spectrometers exploring methods for the determination of CO2 emission rates of power plants. Prior to my PhD I studied physics with a focus on molecular spectroscopy at JGU Mainz, TU Dresden (B.Sc.), LMU Munich (M.Sc.), DLR and, as a Fulbright student, at Harvard University.
