Physics

This is an overview of my work at Stuttgart University (Diploma Thesis 2000), at the Max-Planck-Institute for Metals Research (PhD 2005) and at the School of Engineering and Applied Science at Harvard University (Postdoc 2006-07). My main interest has always been the structure of matter (be it organic molecules, alloys, metallic glasses or colloidal suspensions) at various length and time scales (from Angströms to microns, from picoseconds to days). Since most of the experimental techniques I have used for these projects are based on light (laser spectroscopy, x-ray scattering, confocal microscopy), I am also highly interested in the interaction of light and matter. Since 2008 I am working in industry on photovoltaics and new optical technologies.
