PhD Candidate

About Me

I am a PhD student who started his work in the beginning of 2019 in the field of Nanoscale Thermal Management. I did my Bachelor degree at the TU Darmstadt in Germany in Material Engineering with the specialization Material Analytic, where I focused in my Thesis on the characterization and fabrication of 1D Nanowires. After that I received my Master degree at the UAB in Barcelona in Spain in Advanced Nanoscience and Nanotechnology with the specialization in Nanomaterials. Thereby I worked in my Master Project on the characterization of nanostructures by means of STEM. In my Project I will focus on the research of Devices at the Nanoscale for applications in Thermal Management. Therefore, I will mainly concentrate at the beginning on the characterization of appropriate structures.
