Since October 2005 I was directeur de recherche of CNRS. Since January 2007 I was physically at Astroparticules et Cosmologie (APC), Universite Paris 7.
Since October 1st 1999 I am a charge de recherche (permanent researcher) of the French Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) first at the Departement d'Astrophysique Relativiste et de Cosmologie (DARC) of the Observatoire de Paris-Meudon and, since July 1st 2000, at the Institute d'Astrophysique de Paris (IAP). I am working on various problems of cosmology/astro-particle physics together with local and external collaborators.
From 1996-1999 I was a Research Scientist at the Physics Department and the Center for Astronomy and Astrophysics of the University of Chicago, where I was also a Research Associate from 1993-1996 with a Feodor-Lynen Research Fellowship awarded by the Alexander-von-Humboldt-Stiftung (see also the Alexander von Humboldt Association of America).
I received my Ph.D. in 1993 from the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität, München, where I studied at the Fakultät für Physik. From 1990-1993 I worked as a doctoral student at the Max-Planck-Institut für Physik, Werner-Heisenberg-Institut together with Georg Raffelt and Leo Stodolsky, mostly at the intersection of particle physics with astrophysics and cosmology.
I am member of the peer review and European roadmap committees of the Astroparticle Physics European Coordination (ApPEC).
