This is an overview of my work at Stuttgart University (Diploma
Thesis 2000), at the Max-Planck-Institute for Metals Research (PhD
2005) and at the School of Engineering and Applied Science at Harvard
University (Postdoc 2006-07). My main interest has always been the
structure of matter (be it organic
molecules, alloys, metallic glasses or colloidal suspensions) at
various length and
time scales (from Angströms to microns, from picoseconds to days).
Since most of the experimental techniques I have used for these
projects are based on light (laser spectroscopy, x-ray scattering,
confocal microscopy), I am also highly interested in the interaction of
light and matter. Since 2008 I am working in industry on photovoltaics
and new optical technologies.
