Areas of expertise:
· Formation, processing and stability of cosmic dust analogs such as carbonaceous and siliceous grains of different compositions and structure in various cosmic environments and the spectral properties of dust anaologs.
· UV/Vis/IR spectroscopy of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons including substituted and hydrogenated PAHs in free jets and cryogenic rare gas matrices
· catalytic influence of dust surfaces on astrochemical reactions in ice layers triggered by UV and X-ray photons and erosion of dust grains at the interface dust/ice
