I studied physics in Darmstadt and Karlsruhe. My diploma thesis was in the field of crystal growth. I was awarded my diploma degree in 1987 and my PhD in 1991 both at Karlsruhe University. My PhD thesis was in the field of Atomic Absorption Spectrometry. Until 1997 I worked in a postdoctoral position in the field of fatigue behavior of fiber enforced ceramics at Karlsruhe University. From 1997 until 2000 I joined a group at Carolinum in Frankfurt investigating the mechanical behavior of dental materials. Since 2000 I have been employed at IMT. Until 2010 I developed processes to bring LIGA-technique on the market. From 2011 to 2015 I developed techniques establishing peptide arrays. End of 2015 I moved over to the department of Photonics, Plasmonics and Teratronics, now leading the E-Beam group.
