: CG received his Ph.D in Atmospheric Physics from the University of Bremen, Germany, in 2014. The focus of his Ph.D work was the scientific exploration of Earth atmospheric data from the satellite mission ENVISAT/SCIAMACHY (2002–2012). In 2014–2017, he held a postdoc-equivalent position at the German Aerospace Center (DLR). His task was extracting geophysical and meteorological parameters from Earth observation satellite images. He conducted several peer-reviewed research studies on the planetary atmospheric boundary layer. Currently, he is working on the research project Earth and Mars Atmosphere at the United Arab Emirates University, Al Ain, UAE. Note that CG has discovered his interest in Astro and Planetary Physics long before this work. During his graduation from the university, he wrote a diploma thesis in the field of gravity theory at the Bremen Drop Tower (ZARM) in 2010. In addition, he is an active member of an amateur astronomy club in the greater Bremen area (AVL Lilienthal).AA is Principal Investigator of the project Earth and Mars Atmosphere.
