Research interests

I am mainly interested in dark matter. In my master's, I worked at AMS-02 experiment which is dedicated to finding dark matter candidates called WIMPs through annihilations of them. I worked on finding the high energy gamma ray flux and pinpointing the positions where these gamma rays come from in our galaxy. I constructed the galactic map from AMS-02 data for gamma rays. At HEPHY, I am working at CRESST experiment which I am constructing the background components in the experiment. After constructing the background components, I will construct a background model to be used in the analysis. This background model will include one of the detectors from CRESST-II named TUM40 to understand the missing parts in the background model created before and the new detectors in CRESST-III.
