WELCOME

About me

I am an analytical chemist and since 2013 a full professor at the University of Duisburg-Essen and the chair of the Institute of Applied Analytical Chemistry.

My main research areas are separation science, with a particular focus on

- ​the analysis of complex samples, such as Chinese herbal medicine,

- the development of ion sources,

- the use and optimization of multidimensional LC and GC,

- ion mobility-mass spectrometry and

- Origin-of-Life.

In 2009 I co-founded the company iGenTraX UG, which develops new ion sources for mass spectrometers. Since 2013 I am a consultant for various international companies and organizing – together with international partners – Sino-German workshops and analytica conferences in China and Vietnam. 

In 2018 I have founded the Teaching and Research Center for Separation (TRC) at the University of Duisburg-Essen, which belongs to Agilent's global network of world-class Centers of Excellence.
