Andreas Filipp is a PhD student at the University of Montreal, CIELA, and MILA. His research focuses on strong gravitational lensing at the scale of individual galaxies and dark matter. He is pursuing his PhD under the joint supervision of Yashar Hezaveh and Laurence Perreault-Levasseur. Andreas received his B.Sc. from the Technical University of Munich and completed his master’s degree in physics jointly at the Technical University of Munich and the Max Planck Institute for Astrophysics, where he worked on multi-band lens modeling of galaxy-galaxy lenses, galaxy evolution, and the search for new emission-line-galaxy lens systems in the SDSS-spectra under the supervision of Sherry Suyu and Yiping Shu.
