I am a professor of astrophysics at the University of Zurich. My research is focussed on understanding the origin and evolution of the Universe and how stars, planets and galaxies form. I enjoy communicating science to the public through different media, including writing books, producing music & collaborating with artists. I write a regular column for Das Magazin and I am scientist in residence at the KOSMOS cultural centre in Zurich where I host the occasional ‘Late night science show’!
News: My latest book “Mond – Eine Biografie“, published with Kein & Aber, is now available in German from all good bookstores, amazon, or ebook. It is also available in English (only on amazon) with the title “Moon: Past, Present & Future” as a softcover or ebook.
