My name is Sabrina Schwinger and I studied Geoscience (Petrology) at the Ruhr-University Bochum, where I obtained my PhD in 2016. After that I joined the TRR 170 as a postdoc in Project C4 for the first funding period and started working at the Institute for Planetary Research of the German Aerospace Center (DLR) Berlin. For the second funding period I continued working there on TRR 170 Project A5.
My main research interests are
lunar magma ocean solidification and early interior evolution of the Moon
thermodynamic and kinetic modeling of heating, melting and crystallization processes
When I am not in the office, I like doing martial arts and other types of sport, meeting interesting people and growing tomatoes.
