About Me


My name is Marcel Kehl. I am a passionate scientist working in Neuroscience and Astrophysics. There is so much to discover in our world and I am glad to have a part in some interesting projects. In the past I worked on searching gravitational waves predicted by Einstein and I was member of the LIGO Scientific Collaboration. It was a great honor for me to be part in this scientific community at the time of the first direct detection of gravitational waves. Besides of this I worked on fascinating ways to test Einstein’s theory of relativity with a special kind of stellar remnants called pulsars.

Currently I’m working on understanding the function of memory in the human brain by analyzing the activity of single neurons. In my free time I like to enjoy sports such as climbing, bouldering and diving. Moreover, I love to share my fascination for science with others.
