We warmly welcome Prof. Marc Willinger as a new member of our cluster! With Prof. Willinger e-conversion could win an excellent expert on electron microscopy. In April 2022 he arrived at the TU Munich where he is now building up and equipping the new chair of electron microscopy with research emphasis on energy materials.
The Austrian scientist studied physics at the Technical University in Vienna and obtained his PhD from the Technical University in Berlin for the investigation of the electronic structure of vanadium phosphorous oxides. After a Post Doc at the Department of Inorganic Chemistry of the Fritz Haber Institute (FHI) of the Max Planck Society in Berlin, he moved to the University of Aveiro in Portugal, where he had a position as an independent researcher for 4 years. In 2010, he was offered a group-leader position at the Fritz Haber Institute, where he started to develop and implement tools for multi-scale in-situ and operando electron microscopy. From 2015 until 2018, he also led a second electron microscopy group at the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces. In 2018 he moved to the ETH Zürich where he was working as technical Director at the Scientific Center for Optical and Electron Microscopy (ScopeM). In 2021, Marc Willinger accepted a call from TU Munich and with his start in April 2022 immediately became part of our cluster.
We wish him and his family a good start in Munich and all the best for his research at TUM and many fruitful cooperations within e-conversion!
