    CV

    PROFILE

    I am an experimental research scientist with a background in Chemistry in general and Soft Matter in specific with both academic as well as industrial experience. In collaboration with the European Space Agency I managed a microgravity research project which ran on board of the International Space Station ISS which taught me to successfully work in multidisciplinary and cultural diverse teams with people from different international enterprises. I have experience with different analysis techniques being, among others, microscopy (electron, light and confocal), scattering (static and dynamic light, X-ray, near field), ultracentrifugation, spectroscopic characterization and rheology. I am a fast learner and a dedicated, enthusiastic, creative, analytic and flexible team player with a good eye for detail.
