Andreas Bauswein

Principal Investigator, WA Representative

Andreas Bauswein (Deputy Representative of WA2) is working in the field of compact star mergers performing hydrodynamical simulations of these events. His research focuses on the gravitational wave signal, black-hole formation, the nucleosynthesis and electromagnetic counterparts of mergers. Andreas Bauswein is in particular interested in the connection between nuclear and high-density matter physics and the observables of neutron star mergers. In particular, his research explores possibilities to detect signatures of the hadron-quark phase transition in neutron star mergers. His work is currently supported by an ERC Starting Grant and he received an ERC Synergy Grant with colleagues from Copenhagen, Dublin and Belfast to work on element formation in neutron star mergers.
