Max-Planck-Institut für Astronomie,
Rene studied physics in Berlin, Manchester, and Heidelberg, where he graduated in 2009. In 2011, he finished his PhD about alignment effects of angular momenta of disc galaxies.
He recently joined the CU8 team at the Max-Planck-Institute for Astronomy in Heidelberg (Germany). His primary task is to calibrate the algorithms for estimating stellar atmospheric parameters from BP/RP spectra. In particular, he tries to account for the mismatch of synthetic and real/observed spectra.
Furthermore, Rene is interested in exoplanet detection, mass/luminosity functions of tiny samples of stars and galaxies, and statistical/scientific methodology in general.
