Welcome to my​​​​​​ website!
I have created this website as a repository of information that not only reflects my work and interests, but will also be of good use to others out there that share these interests.
Through the menu you will reach pages containing lists and material compiled by me, as well as links that I have found useful.
Note that, while my first name is certainly not common (even in German-speaking countries), I am aware of numerous other individuals sharing my name (with a surprisingly large fraction in academia). I am an astrophysicist that has been based in South Africa for most of my life. I work in the Physics department at the University of Johannesburg, and have now also developed a keen interest in the field of solar energy (extending to the South African energy sector in general - but do not confuse me with another professor sharing my initial and surname, who is an energy expert based at the University of Cape Town).

Disclaimer: While this website strives to present information that is correct in all respects, errors will sometimes occur. I welcome communication pointing out errors or suggestions of relevant additions. I will however as a rule not engage in conversations, and will also instantly delete any messages not furthering the aims of this website. I also do not necessarily support all the content of websites directed to by the links on this site.
