Hello, I am Dr. Péter I. Pápics

I am a scientist with a PhD in Astronomy and Astrophysics (KU Leuven), building on a decade of experience in academic research, and a growing number of years in projects revolving around transport and mobility. Since April 2022 I am working exclusively at Telraam, a spin-off that was born from one of my earlier projects at Transport & Mobility Leuven, where I worked since 2018. Currently I could best describe myself as a mix of a data scientist, a backend developer, an occasional hardware tester, and a pinch of design and marketing specialist.

I am proud of my research experience which comes from the field of asteroseismology. During my doctoral training and postdoctoral career at the KU Leuven I studied massive stars using data from the CoRoT and Kepler satellites and several ground-based observatories. I took active part also in the data-acquisition process by writing competitive grant applications and spending more than 200 nights at various telescopes. My work has contributed to a better understanding of the internal structure and the physical processes that govern the life of massive stars.

In my free time I am passionate about road cycling, flying (both real – as a PPL student – and simulated), and photography.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or comments!
