Profile Summary

I lead the Adaptive Optics Group at Fraunhofer Institute of Optronics, System Technologies and Image Exploitation in Ettlingen, Germany. I obtained my Ph.D. in Physics from the National University of Ireland in Galway in 2007. I then worked at European Southern Observatory in Garching (Germany) and at Technion - Israel Institute of Technology. I joined Fraunhofer IOSB in 2012 and I currently lead research which focuses on horizontal-path propagation and strong turbulence. I have been awarded several awards and grants, e.g. from University of California, US Air Force and US Navy. I have authored or co-authored over 150 publications on turbulence and adaptive optics in journals and conference proceedings. Additionally, I have represented Germany on the following NATO research task groups: SET-165 “Adaptive Optics for Laser Beam Delivery and Passive and Active Imaging and Turbulence Mitigation”, SET-226 “Turbulence mitigation for Electro Optics (EO) and laser systems”, SET-ET-118 “Modelling, Measuring and Mitigating Optical Turbulence: M3T”. I currently chair NATO SET-304 “Modeling, Measuring and Mitigating Optical Turbulence: M3T” and additionally serve as conference chair and committee member on various OSA and SPIE conferences. I was guest editor for Optical Engineering (SPIE, in 2016/2017) and for the Journal of Applied Remote Sensing (SPIE, in 2017/2018). I had served as Topical Editor for Applied Optics (OSA/Optica), and as Associate Editor, and since 2023 as Senior Editor for Optical Engineering (SPIE). I have managed grants and projects worth around 4 million USD.
