Dr. rer. nat., 2004, University of Bremen

Brief Bio:

Leif studied Physics at the University Hamburg and University Uppsala (1996-2001) concluding his diploma with a theoretical thesis on polarizable potential functions in molecular dynamics simulations.
For his doctoral thesis (University Göttingen, University Bremen 2001-2004) he shifted from theory towards a more experimental topic, developing a method and instrument for the local chemical modification of surfaces based on enzyme-functionalized AFM probes.
After finishing his PhD-thesis he worked at a startup company developing scientific instrumentation for automated force-spectroscopy on biomolecules and polymers.
Moving on in his professional career in 2008 he developed industrial instrumentation for precision thickness gauging of milled goods based on radiometric and laser measurements.
In 2011 Leif returned to academia to work at the Max-Planck-Institut for Meteorology where he provided the scientific community with instrumentation for laboratory and field research.
He joined the chair of Prof. Cuniberti in July 2018 and is now working on carbon nanotube (CNTs) based sensors.
Leif has a strong background in electrical engineering and is holding several patents from a range of disciplines.
