Research Interests

As a data manager in planetary sciences, I am in charge of the management, archiving, distribution, and publication of data produced in the DFG funded CRC 170 Late Accretion onto Terrestrial Planets.

Since the CRC 170 provides new data to the planetary science community, the data management team will be working on developing the infrastructure and tools to archive and retrieve those data products. We are promoting open and F.A.I.R. data.
