Dr. Michael Fischer

Crystalline Microporous Materials

Michael Fischer heads a subgroup „Crystalline Microporous Materials“ within the Crystallography & Geomaterials Research group at the Faculty of Geosciences, University of Bremen. His research employs computational chemistry methods at different levels of theory to study the structures and properties of crystalline materials. Current work, funded by the DFG through a Heisenberg fellowship, focuses on the investigation of zeolites and related materials for the removal of emerging organic contaminants, especially pharmaceuticals and personal care products.

Prof. Dr. Martin Eickhoff

Solid State Materials

Martin Eickhoff is the head of the research group Solid State Materials at the Institute of Solid State Physics, University of Bremen. In his work he focuses on growth and characterization of wide band gap semiconductors and their hetero- and nanostructures as well as novel quantum materials for the application in chemical sensors, biochemical sensors, optoelectronics and nanophotonics.

Dr. Susan Köppen

Biomolecular Modelling

Susan Köppen is the group leader of the “Biomolecular Modeling at Interfaces” group which is part of the Department of Hybrid Materials Interfaces in the Faculty of Production Engineering at the University of Bremen. Her group is associated to the Bremen Center of Computational Materials Science (BCCMS). She did her PhD at the University of Greifswald about simulations of ECM proteins and their impact as coating material for titanium based implants. In her research she unravel processes at hybrid materials interfaces on the molecular level.

Advanced Ceramics

Michaela Wilhelm received her PhD in chemistry from Carl-von Ossietzky University Oldenburg (Germany) in 2001. Since 2002 at the University of Bremen, she is now group leader of the "Polymer-derived Ceramics" group of the Advanced Ceramics Group, where she simultaneously coordinated the DFG Research Training Groups PoreNet (GRK 137) and later MIMENIMA (GRK 1860), in which her research was also embedded. Her research focuses on the development of highly porous, multifunctional ceramics and hybrid materials derived from organic-inorganic polymers such as polysiloxanes and polycarbosilanes for applications in separation and energy conversion technologies as well as catalysis.
