Kiel Nano, Surface and Interface Science (KiNSIS)

Portrait

«My research focusses on comparative morphology, bionics and insect-plant interactions. I’m particularly intrigued by the structure and biomechanics of surfaces, which work as removable adhesive systems. In cooperation with other research centres and companies I have developed methods and devices, with which mechanical properties of biological materials can be measured. I want to understand, how biological structures and surfaces work, so their basic principles can be applied in the production of bionic materials and surfaces.»
