In his PhD work in Physical Chemistry at the University of Tübingen, he studied Langmuir-Blodgett films by surface analytical methods (1990). 1991 he joined University of Augsburg where he started CVD diamond activities. His research interests comprise epitaxial growth and structural analysis of oxide, metal, diamond and graphene films. Strong efforts were focused on the mechanisms of heteroepitaxial diamond nucleation on iridium, the scaling of all the relevant processes to wafer size and the exploration of potential applications such as particle detectors or neutron monochromators. Together with two colleagues, he founded the startup company Augsburg Diamond Technology GmbH (AuDiaTec) in 2015.
