... building research instruments for astrophysics by day to use them at night. Time in between is spent discussing and mulling over implications of natural and computer sciences for society, hiking the alps and helping building the Munich Freifunk backbone.

Made towards the end of the 70s, my endeavors started with a broken (but fixed by my dad) SX-64. Hooked up ATARIs to synthesizers and CB in the 90s.
After studying Experimental- and Laser-Physics in Bielefeld, I received a PhD in Astrophysics from the Max Planck Institute for extraterrestrial Physics. I co-built LUCI and contributed to the ARGOS project - the two astronomical instruments that will be in the talk.
