Dr. Florian Niederhofer

I am currently a postdoc at the AIP working in the 'Dwarf Galaxies and the Galactic Halo' group led by Maria-Rosa Cioni.

My research here is founded on the ERC grant INTERCLOUDS. I am working on dynamical studies of the Magellanic system, using mainly data from the VISTA near-infrared survey of the Magellanic Cloud system (VMC).

Before I came to Potsdam, I was a postdoc at the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore with Nate Bastian, where I studied the multiple population phenomenon in star clusters within the Magellanic Clouds.

I obtained my Diploma in Physics and my Ph.D. in Astrophysics at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität in Munich under the supervision of Markus Kissler-Patig and Barbara Ercolano.

During that time I also spent three years at the European Southern Observatory in Garching.
