Robert Marcus Wagner

Robert Wagner

Currently I am working as a Postdoctoral Researcher at Max-Planck-Institut für Physik and hold a Junior-PI position of the DFG Excellence Cluster “Origin and Structure of the Universe”. I am a member of the MAGIC collaboration, which has built and operates the two largest imaging air Cerenkov telescopes world-wide, designed for the investigation of very high-energy gamma rays. The MAGIC telescopes are located at the European Northern Observatory atop 2,400-m Roque de los Muchachos on the Canary Island of La Palma. As an experimental particle physicist and astrophysicist by training, I am involved in data analysis and data interpretation for MAGIC, where my scientific interests focus on the physics of extragalactic gamma-ray sources, and in the construction and commissioning of the second MAGIC telescope. I am member of the MAGIC/H·E·S·S/VERITAS joint observations team as well as of the M87 team. I collaborate in the AGN physics working group of MAGIC and in the Telescope Design, AGN Physics, and Observatory and Outreach groups of the Cherenkov Telescope Array consortium I am member of the MAGIC Time Allocation Committee, Speakers' Bureau, and Editorial Board.

When I heard the Learn'd Astronomer
Walt Whitman

WHEN I heard the learn'd astronomer;
When the proofs, the figures, were ranged in columns before me;
When I was shown the charts and the diagrams, to add, divide, and
        measure them; When I, sitting, heard the astronomer, where he lectured with much
        applause in the lecture-room,
How soon, unaccountable, I became tired and sick;
Till rising and gliding out, I wander'd off by myself,
In the mystical moist night-air, and from time to time,
Look'd up in perfect silence at the stars.
