You have reached my acedemic website. Up to 2017 I worked as associate professor at Heriot Watt University in Edinburgh, UK and before as group leader at the University of Göttingen, Germany. In both positions, I developed instrumentation and methods to study problems in life science. I am still involved in scientific research and education.

Since then, I have moved back to Germany. First at SmarAct GmbH, where I was involved in the development of the Picoscale Vibrometer, an instrument that employs interferometry with an IR laser to characterize MEMS and other micromechanical devices. Since 2021, I am at Hensoldt Optronics in Wetzlar where I am leading the Sights Engineering department.
