My name is Philipp Girichidis and I am a Postdoc at the Max Planck Institute for Astrophysics in Garching near Munich, Germany. My research focususes on the physical processes in the interstellar medium. Using hydrodynamical simulations I work on aspects of

In a scale-free context I am interested in the processes of turbulent motions in self-gravitating systems and the relation between kinetic, internal, and gravitational energy. I investigate the kinetics and gravitational collapse in turbulent boxes with numerical simulations and statistical descriptions like the density PDF.
