In the year 1978 I began to study Physics at the University of Cologne. In 1982 I started collaborating at the Institute of Nuclear Physics where in 1990 I obtained my Ph.D. (i.e. Dr.rer.nat.) with first-class honours on a thesis about Fast Methods for the Analysis of gamma-gamma Coincidences with Large Detector Arrays and Measurement of the High Spin States of 146Gd and 128Ba.
In 1991, I moved to Portugal. First for a three year's fellowship supported by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, then to stay...
Until 1994, I worked as a PostDoc at the Center of Nuclear Physics in Lisbon on Materials Sciences with Nuclear Physics Methods, in strong collaboration with the Institute of Nuclear Technologies in Sacavém.
Since 2006, I am full time investigator at LIP (Laboratory for Instrumentation and Experimental Particle Physics) in Coimbra, a beautiful old city in the center of Portugal, which has a University that is one of the oldest in Europe (founded in 1290).
Since 2007, I am also Invited Lecturer at the Physics Department there.
