rugSince November 2014 I am an assistant professor in the Pharmaceutical Analysis group of the Groningen Research Institute of Pharmacy at the University of Groningen. Here I work on nanoscale methods in analytical chemistry based on electrochemistry and optical sensing.

ifwIn 2014 I joined to the Oliver Schmidt’s Institute for Integrative Nanosciences at the IFW Dresden  and Materials Research in Dresden and  the Material Systems for Nanoelectronics research group at  Chemnitz University of Technology. I worked on the extension of electrical spectroscopy to complex redox-active compounds.

nanoioncsUntil January 2014, I worked as a postdoc in Serge Lemay’s lab at the MESA+ Institute of Nanotechnology (University of Twente). My research was focused on electrochemical nanofluidic sensors.

ethlogo3Before joining the MESA+ Institute in 2011 I worked on microfluidic microfluidic device for impedance spectroscopy of cells in Andreas Hierlemann’s lab at the ETH Zürich in Basel.

muphi_groundIn 2010 I got my Ph.D. in Physics (Dr. rer. nat.) from the Max Planck Institute of Microstructure Physics in Halle, working with Ulrich Gösele. My research was on transport of nanoparticles in microfluidic ratchets and on photoelectrochemical etching of macroporous silicon membranes.

Universität_Würzburg_Logo.svgtitechI got my diploma in Nanostructuring Technology (Dipl.-Ing.) from the University of Würzburg in 2005. For my thesis I fabricated semiconductor lasers in Würzburg and at the Tokyo Institute of Technology.
