Currently, I am working at SmarAct GmbH
where I am involved in the development of instruments to characterize
microscopic structures. This work recently resulted in the Picoscale Vibrometer
, an instrument that employs interferometry with an IR laser to characterize MEMS and other micromechanical devices.
Before, I worked as associate
professor at Heriot Watt University in Edinburgh, UK and as group
University of Göttingen, Germany. In both positions, I developed
instrumentation and methods to study problems in life science. I am
still actively involved in teaching and scientific research.
