Johannes is an honorary member of staff since July 2014. He was a Lecturer and Senior Lecturer in the School of Engineering (1/2010-1/2014), before he was appointed as full professor and head of engieering thermodynamics at the University of Bremen, Germany. Johannes graduaded with a degree in chemical engineering from the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany in 2005 and received his doctoral degree from the same university in 2008.

Research Interests

Development and application of optical spectroscopic techniques for process monitoring and material analysis.

Enantioselective Raman spectroscopy: A very recent highlight was the development of a Raman spectroscopy method for the discrimination of enantiomers. The new approach represents a unique tool enabling the simultaneous speciation, enantiomeric discrimination, as well as structural and quantitative analysis. The main applications will be in the pharmaceutical sector and in the life sciences. Read more:
