About me

I was born on November 24th 1983 and grew up in Nuremberg, Germany. I studied chemistry at the Jagiellonian University in Cracow, Nanyang Technological University Singapore and École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne. After having obtained my PhD degree from ETH Zurich under the supervision of Prof. Reinhard Nesper in 2013, I moved to the University of California, Berkeley, for postdoctoral studies with Prof. Peidong Yang. Since September 2014, I had been working as a group leader at the Institute of Inorganic Chemistry, RWTH Aachen Univeristy, Germany, where I obtained my habilitation in February 2019. Since March 2019 I am Assistant Professor (tenure-track) in Inorganic Chemistry at the Department of Materials and Environmental Chemistry, Stockholm University, Sweden.


Our goal is the  development of materials and sustainable methods for environmental applications and solar energy conversion.
