Tim studied mechanical and process engineering at the Technische Universität Darmstadt and joined the BCS group in 2017. His background is in fluid mechanics and metrology, originally in the wind tunnel and in-flight measurement setting. Having previously investigated bioinspired unsteady aerodynamics, self-organising systems and microfluidic metrology, Tim has transitioned to microfluidics and experimental design. While he is still interested in fundamental fluid mechanical questions, he is currently working on novel microfluidic components and optimized experimental design within the framework of the LOEWE CompuGene research program (project B-2).

Tim's research interests are focused around developing metrology for single-cell measurements. He is especially interested in optimal-experimental design with both automated measurements and system perturbation methods. This requires the development of novel microfluidic components, automated image processing tools, mathematical modelling, as well as addressing wet lab questions such as controlling organism culture conditions.

Student projects are available in a range of different fields corresponding to the diverse research interests. Topics range from IT, over classical engineering projects to biological investigations. A list of potential topics offered at BCS can be found here.
