My research focuses on understanding nuclear structure properties in various regions of the nuclear chart through the construction and exploitation of novel experimental detector setups. I am primarily interested in heavy and super-heavy nuclear systems as well as lighter nuclei close to the proton drip line. The investigation of the single-particle and collective character of these systems allows us to study several phenomena spanning from the interaction of nucleons within the nucleus to the creation of elements in the universe.


Main instrumentation projects:


The MARA-LEB facility at the University of Jyväskylä, Finland, which will be used in the investigation of nuclei close to the proton drip line through mass measurements and laser ionisation spectroscopy.

The SAGE and SPEDE spectrometers which allow the simultaneous detection of conversion electrons and γ rays with stable and radioactive ion beams, respectively.

I am also involved in several other projects in CERN, Jyväskylä, GSI and Ganil.
