Felix Bosco | Astrophysicist. Developer


I am a postdoctoral researcher in the JuHeart group (Jörg-Uwe Pott) at the Max Planck Institute for Astronomy (MPIA) in Heidelberg. Previously, I was a fellow of the International Max Planck Research School on Astronomy and Cosmic Physics at the University of Heidelberg (IMPRS).

I am studying novel methods for exhausting the resolution limits of current 8m-class telescopes. In the SOWAT project, we analyze the benefit of applying image reconstruction algorithms on imaging data, obtained with partial AO correction, to reach the diffraction limit of the telescope and in the SPAM project we work on high-precision spectroastrometric measurements of broad emission line regions (BLR) of active galactic nuclei (AGNs). For details you may take a look at the RESEARCH section.

Besides the research, I am volunteering in the public outreach activities of the House of Astronomy (HdA) as an outreach fellow. In this position, I guide visiting groups to the HdA planetarium and the facilities at MPIA campus on mount Königstuhl. For more outreach activities, check out the OUTREACH section.
