IMG_4942Hi, welcome to my website! I’m Hans, a space scientist studying the moons of Jupiter. Right now I am working as a Research Fellow at the European Space Agency (ESTEC, Noordwijk, the Netherlands). I received my PhD at the Max Planck Institute of Solar System Research (Göttingen, Germany) and the Technical University of Braunschweig.

Besides my work as a scientists I am also active as a science communicator, contact me if you are interested in a talk or workshop for your school, planetarium or knitting club. Take a look at my recent talks to get an of idea what I usually talk about. You can also find me on twitter and youtube.
