Welcome to my website!

I am a medical doctor and scientist specialized in Orthopaedic Surgery, Physiology, Sport- and Emergency Medicine. My main field of research is the musculoskeletal system in spaceflight, immobilisation and ageing, and I am involved in studies with DLR (the German Space Agency), ESA and NASA. I am currently affiliated with Manchester Metropolitan University in the UK, where I work with a DFG (German Research Foundation) research fellowship grant. This website is about my research, books, lectures and what is going on!
