Archmage & Money Conjurer
Christoph studied chemistry at the University of Innsbruck. After an IAESTE Internship at the National Institute of Material Science (NIMS) in Japan, he conducted his PhD at the Inorganic Chemistry Department of the Fritz-Haber-Institute in Berlin and the University of Innsbruck (within the framework of a joint project on methanol steam reforming on bimetallic catalysts). For his PostDoc, he went to the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, financed by an Erwin-Schrödinger Fellowship. In Berkeley, he worked at the Advanced Light Source with Dr. Hendrik Bluhm.
After his return to Austria, Christoph went to TU Wien to work at the Institute of Materials Chemistry, where he is now an independent research group leader and Assistant Professor. His teaching at TU Wien is focused on physical chemistry and advanced in-situ (operando) spectroscopy. He particularly enjoys supervision of master and PhD students, creating a dynamic and motivated research team.
His free time he spends with his family, mainly in the mountains (hiking, skiing, sledging…). Occasionally, he still finds some time to roam through the universe of EVE Online making wormholes unsafe.
