Tim Finkbeiner studied Bioengineering at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), where he specialized in Biopharmaceutical Process Engineering. He received his Master’s degree (M.Sc.) in October 2015. In January 2016, he started working as a Ph.D. student in the group of Prof. Dr. A. Guber at the Institute of Microstructure Technology (IMT) in the research field of biomedical microtechnology. During his Ph.D., he worked on the development of a modular microfluidic bioreactor for plant cell cultivation (see projects of BioMEMS) and earned his Ph.D degree in July 2019.
