After getting my PhD at the RWTH Aachen in 2004 and working as Post-Doc at Forschungszentrum Jülich, I became the head of the High Temperature Materials Laboratory at Forschungszentrum Jülich in 2012, focusing on characterization of the performance and damage analyses of non-irradiated and irradiated plasma facing materials and components when exposed to high heat fluxes. Since 2017, I took over the role of Project Leader for the Work Package Materials covering topics from material design interface via structural, high heat flux and functional material development, characterization, and qualification to irradiation modelling.
