My day-to-day supervisor is Bernd Husemann, the principal investigator of the Close AGN Reference Survey. The idea of the survey is to investigate the sample of ~40 nearby AGN (0.01 < z < 0.06) in detail and provide a reference for mid- and high-redshift research.

My part of the survey team work is concentrated on the AGN-host galaxy connection, more specifically, the AGN impact on star formation. The goal of my PhD project is to compare different star formation indicators, such as Hα λ6563A, [CII] λ158um, and CO(1‑0) 115 GHz emission lines and far infrared dust continuum emission.

The multiwavelength analysis is a powerful technique to view an object from different perspectives. It also means working with different types of data, obtained with all kinds of observatories: from ground-based interferometers to space missions. I have already gained some experience with IFU data from VLT/MUSE and SOFIA/FIFI-LS.

My new reduction step for the FIFI-LS data allowed to process the extragalactic low signal-to-noise observations and discover the [CII] line excess.
