Areas of Expertise:
Correlation of Manufacturing Processes with the Modification of Surface and Subsurface Properties of Metal Components

About me

I am Chief Engineer of the Division Manufacturing Technologies and Head of the Junior Research Group "Functionalization of Surfaces in Manufacturing Processes" in Bremen. My interests include ideas from natural science (microbiological and chemical aspects in technical fluids), engineering (influence of processes on part quality), and social sciences (knowledge transfer), with a focus on manufacturing technologies and metalworking fluids.

As a Research Affiliate of the International Academy of Production Engineering, I am a member of an international network of young high potentials. However, I still see the need to increase the involvement of researchers from the Arab countries: the Arab world has a huge potential to significantly contribute to the success of cooperative research. Furthermore, natural sciences, social sciences, and technological sciences can learn a lot from each other and a considerable number of challenges can only be addressed combining the expertises.

Current projects

  • Member of the AGYA Innovation Working Group
  • Leader of a sub-project dealing with processes with purely mechanical loads (e.g. deep rolling) at the transregional Collaborative Research Center SFB TRR 136 "Process signatures"
  • Project coordinator of a European research project focussing on a science-based paradigm shift in the application of metalworking fluids
