BOOM – it was meant to be! Carmen, Kirstin and Flo met over 10 years ago as PhD students in a research project. Even though we were all young researchers at different locations, we became friends and have been ever since. A lot of brain power, beer and travel on the way, our professional paths got more specific, our travel adventures more adventurous, families grew, we met our friends Andrea, Anika, Ebru & Iñigo (more travels and beer) and it all condensed to a super power – The programming physicists, pals & rebels – P³R!
Dr. Carmen Köhler
CEO & Founder
Carmen’s education is adventurous and covers a diploma in maths, a PhD in physics as well as analog astronaut training and a journeyman’s certificate as a hair dresser. Her programming skills cover several languages and she is very experienced in working with renewable energy and space-related education projects. Her enthusiasm drives this company, turns every work meeting to fun and has inspired a wide range of audiences!
Dr. KirstIn Kober
COO & Wonderwoman
Kirstin is a theoretical meteorologist with a PhD in physics. She is familiar with all kinds of methods to consider and analyze uncertainty in numerical weather prediction models. As assistant professor she gained experience in teaching, supervising, project management and juggling of all these demands next to her scientific work. Her strategic mind and eye for details refocus P³R when we all get too excited about our topics and possible innovations.
Dr. Florian HaRnisch
CTO & Mastermind
Flo has a diploma in meteorology and a PhD in physics. He gathered lots of experience in working with lidar, radar and satellite data, focusing on their use in numerical weather prediction models. With these methods he also explored the always exciting world of data science outside of meteorology. His sharp mind and reliable extraction of essentials is mind blowing and always worth an after work beer!
Dr. Holger Ruf
CIO & Energy source
Holger started his career as energy electrician and during his master of engineering and PhD in renewable energies he worked in several energy companies and institutions and gained profound knowledge in a variety of sectors. His up-to-date knowledge of the vivid energy market rounds up P³R’s portfolio perfectly! Were not sure what his secret energy source is (yet) – he’s unstoppable in finding solutions and brings the company to a next level!
Programmer & Youngster
Andrea has a bachelor in maths and informatics and is currently still active in academia. She’s our allround brain when it comes to programming. She appears quiet, but she might also just translate the current discussion in binary code. Her reliability rounds up our team in the most positive sense of the term!
Consultant & Business Magnet
Anika has a diploma in engineering of environmental technology as well as in biology and soon a PhD in public health. Also, she’s an analog astronaut and is currently training for her next Mars simulation mission. She loves to explore the unknown and her thirst for knowledge has pointed P³R to exciting new areas. Her creative mind sees connections!
Consultant & Visionary
Ebru is a mechanical engineer with an MBA. Her vast experience in industrial project management together with sheer unlimited idea explosions are a driving motor of this company! With Ebru there is always a solution and the path there will be fun and effective. We are happy to have her onboard to ask the right questions in the right moments to ensure high quality outcomes.
Iñigo Muñoz Elorza
Consultant & from another Planet
Iñigo holds masters both in astrophysics and aerospace engineering. He explores Mars from our home planet as analog astronaut and is a former astronaut instructor. He feeds P³R with his seemingly unlimited knowledge about anything mankind or nature created and is cruising around the sun. His views on phenomena and challenges are a game changer!
