CVDiploma (master) in theoretical physics of the university of Zurich, Switzerland. Director: Prof. N. Straumann. PhD of ETH Zurich, 1994.Thesis: Some aspects of the computational dynamics of astrophysical nebulae.Directors: Prof. H. Nussbaumer, ETH-Z, and Prof R.J. LeVeque, University of Washington, Seattle, USA. Research interestsMassive stars as cosmic engines; high energy objects: nova, supernova and gamma ray bursts; binary star systems and supernova Ia progenitors; turbulence in radiative, magnetic, and multi-scale flows. Numerical astrophysics, in particular multi-scale, multi-physics simulations within a massively parallel environnement.
