Two New Research Fellows Join the Cluster

The first of October brought several scientists to the Universe Cluster. Besides three new JRG-Leaders, the Cluster also welcomes two new Research Fellows: Dr. Robert Dunn and Dr. Boris Grube.

Robert Dunn received his PhD at the Institute of Astronomy, Cambridge, on the interplay between supermassive black holes and clusters of galaxies. Subsequently, he became a PDRA in the Astronomy Group with Professor Rob Fender at the University of Southampton, where he started to work on stellar mass black holes in X-ray binaries. His main research interests focus on the interaction that black holes have with their environment, as well as how their environment affects the black holes. With his investigations he hopes to further the understanding of black holes in general, which is of great importance with regard to their influence on galaxy and large scale structure formation. 

After obtaining his PhD from the Technische Universität München, Boris Grube worked as a Postdoctoral researcher at Pusan National University, Korea and was a member of the STAR collaboration at the Brookhaven National Laboratory, USA. At the Cluster, he will concentrate on the field of hadron physics focusing mainly on the measurement of the hadronic and gluonic excitation spectrum using hadron beams at the CERN COMPASS experiment.
