The author

I am Ralf J. Geretshauser. Welcome to my homepages!

As a PhD student I am member of the
Computational Physics Department of the Institute for Astronomy and Astrophysics at the Eberhard Karls Universität Tübingen.

My research project
"Simulation of Pre-Planetesimal Collisions with Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics" is carried out within the DFG Research Unit 759 "Formation of Planets" and supervised by PD Dr. Roland Speith. Publications, details on the project and on my research interests in astrophysics and numerics can be found in the physics section.

I am also about to finish my Master’s degree in philosophy with a thesis on the
"Relation of Knowledge and Faith in the Works of Augustine and Kant" which is supervised by Prof. Dr. Johannes Brachtendorf. Further philosophical and interdisciplinary works and research interests are listed in the philosophy section.

My studies in physics, mathematics and philosophy at the
Universität Regensburg, University of Cambridge (GB), and Eberhard Karls Universität Tübingen were supported by scholarships of the Cusanuswerk, the Baden-Württemberg-Stiftung, and the Cambridge European Trust. Other biographical information can be found in the curriculum vitae section.
