Christina is a trainee at the Research and Scientific Support Department at ESTEC from September until December 2011. She works under the supervision of Jos De Bruijne about F. Mignards 'Hundred Thousand Proper Motion' Project. The aim of her project is to determine which of the stars measured by the Hipparcos Mission, that are going to be measured by Gaia again, need to have a precisely measured radial velocity in order to determine the proper motion of the star accurately.
Christina has received her Bachelor's degree in Physics from the University of Goettingen in July 2011. After her internship at ESTEC she is going to continue her studies.
