Physikerin der Woche

Ab Januar 2018 werden wir Ihnen wöchentlich eine Physikerin in einem kurzen Bericht vorstellen. Möchten Sie selbst Ihr Forschungsgebiet vorstellen oder wollen Sie eine Physikerin in Deutschland oder eine deutsche Physikerin im Ausland (Bachelorstudentin, Masterstudentin, Doktorandin, Postdoktorandin, Gruppenleiterin, Professorin - Physikerinnen aller Karrierestufen können sich beteiligen) für unser Physikerin der Woche Projekt vorschlagen, dann kontaktieren Sie bitte Frau Dr. Ulrike Boehm (boehm at akc.dpg-physik.de).  


Dr. Ulrike Endesfelder (Marburg) - Kalenderwoche 8

Ulrike is a group leader at the Max Planck Institute for Terrestrial Microbiology in Marburg and member of the German Young Academy. Her group specializes in the in situ observation of molecular processes underlying cellular functions in microorganisms and combines biological research with technological innovation to gain a basic understanding of how complex interdependencies of single molecules enable life. Focusing on the two microbial model organisms E. coli and S. pombe, Ulrike and her group apply and develop two key super-resolution microscopy technologies: studying fast and heterogeneous cellular dynamics using single-particle tracking (SPT) techniques and revealing the structure of complex multi-protein assemblies using Single-Molecule Localization Microscopy (SMLM) imaging.

Dr. Cornelia Hofmann (Dresden) - Kalenderwoche 7

Cornelia a Postdoctoral researcher at the Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems in Dresden. She studies the interaction of strong ultrafast laser pulses with atoms, which allows them to investigate electron wave packet dynamics both during the strong-field ionization process and during the subsequent propagation of the photoelectron. Ionized photoelectrons can take part in many different phenomena, such as creating highly excited Rydberg states, or contributing to High Harmonic Generation. This fundamental research helps understanding ultrafast charge transport in a variety of process, for example during chemical reactions or in photovoltaic cells.

The picture shows her during her doctoral defense.

Dr. Sophia Rudorf (Potsdam) - Kalenderwoche 6

Sophia is a group leader at the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces in Potsdam. She is a theoretical biophysicist working on mathematical models of biomolecular processes. Currently, her research focuses on the synthesis of proteins by molecular machines called ribosomes.

Leila Mirzagholi (Garching/Munich) - Kalenderwoche 5

Leila is a PhD student at the Max Planck Institute for Astrophysics in Garching/Munich. During her Ph.D. she is looking at the effects of massive neutrinos on structure formation and their clustering in the vicinity of Earth, these results are very important for future experiments aiming at detecting the cosmic neutrino background predicted by the big bang model.

Dr. Amelie Heuer-Jungeman (Munich) - Kalenderwoche 4

Amelie is a Postdoctoral researcher at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität, Munich. Her work is focused on different applications of DNA origami. One goal is to develop a new method for DNA sequencing, another is the controlled formation of 3D DNA crystals capable of hosting large guest molecules such as gold nanoparticles or proteins, which could serve as new metamaterials or open up paths to optical super-resolution-based protein structure analysis and CryoEM tomography.

The picture shows her in the lab, pipetting DNA staple strands that will be used to form the DNA origami.

Miriam Cabero Müller (Hannover) - Kalenderwoche 3

Miriam is a PhD student at the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics in Hannover. She is a member of the LIGO Scientific Collaboration since February 2015 and she analyzes data from gravitational-wave detectors. Currently, she is also working on tests of General Relativity using real gravitational-wave signals from black-hole binaries.

The photo was taken at the first meeting of the LIGO Scientific Collaboration and the Virgo Collaboration (March 2016) after the publication of the first observation of a gravitational-wave event, GW150914 (February 2016). In the picture Miriam is holding the cover of the scientific publication, which was printed on a cardboard and signed by all the co-authors present in that meeting. She is pointing to her signature.

Shweta Agarwal (Garching/Munich) - Kalenderwoche 2

Shweta is an Indian astrophysicist who started her PhD at the Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics (MPE) in Garching in September 2017 after finishing her master thesis at the University of Manchester, UK. She studied the spectrum of supernova remnants at high radio frequencies for her masters. Now, as a part of the high energy group at the MPE, she is continuing her research with supernova remnants in X ray frequencies. Her aim at the moment is to analyze the XMM and Chandra data for supernova remnants (SNRs) to look into the open questions on the internal structure of neutron stars.

Anna Benecke (Hamburg/Genf) - Kalenderwoche 1

Anna ist Doktorandin in der Teilchenphysik an der Universität Hamburg. Normalerweise analysiert sie Daten des CMS Experiments des LHCs in Genf am CERN, momentan jedoch arbeitet sie selbst am Detektor. Auf dem Bild seht ihr sie an einem Versuchsaufbau.

Anna is a PhD student in particle physics at the University of Hamburg / Universität Hamburg. Normally she is analyzing data from the CMS Experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) near Geneva (CERN), but at the moment she is working at the detector itself. In the picture you can see her at a test setup that they are building up at the moment.
