Prof. Dr. Werner Hofmann

Director emeritus at MPIK, retired since June 2019 (CV).

Research interests concern high-energy astrophysics with H.E.S.S. and  CTA, development of instrumentation for gamma-ray astronomy,
as well as the search for neutrino-less double beta decay with the GERDA experiment.
