Christine M. Koepferl


I am interested in interdisciplinary, diverse and creative research and education. I enjoy research topics which require the communication of diverse groups; e. g. theorists, experimentalists, data scientists, engineers, etc. To further the transfer of knowledge I am involved in teaching, outreach and citizen science projects.

I specialised in synthetic observations of astronomical objects, especially star-forming regions and protoplanetary discs. I developed a tool called the FLUXCOMPENSATOR which can generate synthetic observations which are directly comparable to real observations. I use these synthetic observations to benchmark hydrodynamical simulations and also to test the accuracy of observational techniques.
