Dr. Anna Franckowiak

I am a staff scientist at DESY. My research is focused on multi-messenger astronomy and I am working with neutrino, optical and gamma-ray data.
During my PhD within the IceCube Collaboration I worked on probing the connection of jets, Supernovae and Gamma-Ray Bursts using TeV neutrinos. As a postdoc at the SLAC National Linear Accelerator Laboratory I studied the morphology and the spectrum of the Fermi bubbles and searched for gamma-ray emission from Type IIn supernovae using Fermi-LAT data as a member of the Fermi-LAT Collaboration.

Starting in January 2017 I am leading a Helmholtz Young Investigator Group at DESY Zeuthen. Our goal is to identify the sources of high-energy neutrinos in a multi-messenger approach combining IceCube neutrino data with optical survey data collected by ASAS-SN and ZTF.

My group has an opening for a PhD position. Please contact me for further details.
