About Me

My Name is Marcel Kehl and I am a dedicated scientist working on the frontiers of our current understanding in Neuroscience and Astrophysics. There is so much to discover in our world and I am glad to be part of some fascinating research projects. I advocate for collaborative interdisciplinary research and love to share my fascination for science with others.

Currently, I am a researcher at the University of Oxford and the University of Bonn exploring the foundations of memory formation in the human brain by analysing the activity of single neurons.

In the past I worked on searching for gravitational waves predicted by Einstein and I was a member of the LIGO Scientific Collaboration. It was a great honour for me to be part of this scientific community at the time of the first direct detection of gravitational waves. Besides this I have worked on fascinating ways to test Einstein’s theory of general relativity with a special kind of stellar remnants called pulsars.

In my free time I like to enjoy sports such as climbing, bouldering and scuba diving.
