Kiel Nano, Surface and Interface Science (KiNSIS)

Early career researchers elected to the KiNSIS speaker group

Apr 02, 2020

Bahr GruberStarting with the summer semester 2020, the KiNSIS speaker group has been expanded with Andreas Bahr (Nano Engineering) and Manuel Gruber (Nano Physics), two representatives from the young scientists at KiNSIS. Both candidates had previously been elected in an online vote of all members with a simple majority each. Read more

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Andreas Bahr is a member of the Institute of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology at the Faculty of Engineering since 2017 and a member of KiNSIS since 2018. He received his PhD in 2017 at the University of Technology, Hamburg for his work on microelectronic systems for brain signal acquisition and analysis of local neural networks. In the last three years, he established an independent research group dedicated to sensor system electronics. His research focus is microelectronic integrated circuit design, the so-called CMOS chip design. Prof. Bahr build up a design infrastructure for studies and research consisting of a dedicated software design environment and high performance computing server, supported by the EU’s HORIZON 2020 research programme “Europractice” and the industry driven program “Cadence Academic Network”. Prof. Bahr is strongly engaged in interdisciplinary research, especially between electrical engineering, material science, neurology and biomedical imaging, among others. Within KiNSIS he is also very active in numerable research collaboration like CRC 1261 “Magnetoelectric Sensors: From Composite Materials to Biomagnetic Diagnostics”, RTG 2154 “Materials for Brain” and FOR 2093 “Memristive devices for neuronal systems”.

Dr. Manuel Gruber joined the Institute of Experimental and Applied Physics at Kiel University in 2015 and is a member of KiNSIS since 2017. He earned his PhD degree in the framework of a cotutelle at the University of Strasbourg and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT).
At Kiel University Gruber works in the group of Professor Richard Berndt and leads a subgroup investigating physical properties of molecules adsorbed on surfaces using low-temperature scanning tunneling microscopy along with synchrotron-radiation based methods. Their activities span from (spin) switching of individual adsorbed molecules to the investigation of many-body effects that emerge from the interaction between molecules and the underlying substrate.
For his highly interdisciplinary research Gruber interacts with chemists to design molecular complexes with desirable properties and with theorists to tackle challenging physical effects. He has been active in collaborative research frameworks like the CRC 668 “Magnetism from the Single Atom to the Nanostructure”, CRC 677 “Function by Switching” and the European research and innovation project COSMICS “New Concepts and Tools in Molecular Spintronics”, funded by the EU's HORIZON 2020 research programme.
