Christian is a researcher at the University of Münster (Germany), where he also completed his PhD in 2005 while working at the PHENIX Experiment at RHIC/BNL. In 2006 he became a CERN Fellow in the ALICE collaboration and served as a CERN guide for all LHC experiments. He returned to Münster as an EMMI Research Fellow in 2008 and established the local outreach activities and Masterclasses on particle physics with the start of the German framework "Netzwerk Teilchenwelt". His primary field of research is the study of the Quark-Gluon-Plasma with hard and electromagnetic probes.
Christian is very interested in communicating the concepts and facets of fundamental research to the general public, from primary school to senior citizens and from the Big Bang to neutrinos and dark matter. He enjoys visiting schools, organizing masterclasses and public events to talk about nuclear and particle physics, detectors and life as a physicist, often with LEGO in his hand and a VR-Headset. Since 2019 Christian is the coordinator of a hub for outreach in particle and nuclear physics in Germany (KONTAKT) with the aim to broaden the concept of Masterclasses and workshops with to various age groups and across the topics topics in nuclear and particle physics.
