Professor | Experimental Physics VI, University of Würzburg; Bavarian Center for Applied Energy Research (ZAE Bayern e.V.), Germany |

A solid state physicists by education and received his PhD in 1999 from the Ruhr-University in Bochum, Germany, on ferromagnetic resonance studies on exchange coupled Fe/Cr magnetic thin films. Afterwards, he moved for a two-years postdoc fellowship to Princeton University, followed by a six-years stay at Stuttgart University. In 2008, he accepted a call from the Julius-Maximilian University in Würzburg, Germany. Since then, he holds a professorship at the Institute of Experimental Physics VI as well as an appointment as scientific consultant on ‘Organic Opto-Electronics’ at the Bavarian Center for Applied Energy Research (ZAE Bayern e.V.).

His scientific interests cover a wide range of organic semiconductor related subjects, including fundamental questions on their electronic and optical excitations as well as their application in thin film devices, like OLEDs, transistors or non-classical single photon sources. As such, his group is involved in many research activities as well as industrial collaborations. In recent years, he extended his activities on thermoelectric applications of low-dimensional organic conductors as well as novel polymeric composites.
