Tim Dietrich


Hi,
I am Tim Dietrich (CV) and currently employed as Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellow at Nikhef, the Dutch National Institute for Subatomic Physics. I am working in the field of Numerical Relativity, in particular I am studying the merger of binary neutron stars.
Over the last years I have performed a large number of simulations which are publicly available as a part of the Computational Relativity Database . I have also developed a model to compute kilonovae lightcurves.
