Curriculum Vitae

PhD-Students

Dipl.-Ing.

Michael Pfletscher

Since he had discovered science in his younger years, Michael decided to study chemistry (2008-2012) with the main focus on organic chemistry. During his diploma work at Boehringer Ingelheim RCV GmbH & Co KG in Vienna, he already dealt with the synthesis and investigation of the structure-activity relationships (SAP) of antitumor active pyrimidine derivatives, before he continued his work at the Julius-Maximilians University in Würzburg (2012-2014) under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. mult. Gerhard Bringmann on the basis of antimalarial and antileishmanial active binaphthyl compounds. After this step Michael moved for his Ph.D. work into the field Materials Science where he is working on subtle changes in supramolecular liquid crystalline systems.

M. Sc.

Matthias Spengler

Matthias grew up in Feldhausen, a small one-horse town in the northern part of the Ruhr District. He completed his B.Sc. in Chemistry under supervision of Prof. Dr. Carsten Schmuck at the University of Duisburg-Essen in 2014 and continued with his Master’s Degree straightaway. After finishing his Master’s Thesis at the University of British Columbia in beautiful Vancouver, Canada, under supervision of Jun. Prof. Dr. Michael Giese and Prof. Mark MacLachlan, he joined the Giese Group for his PH.D. in October 2016. He’s currently working on halogen-bonded supramolecular liquid crystals and the development of thermochromic composite materials using mesoporous organosilica. When not in the lab, he enjoys skiing, sailing, playing volleyball, cooking, and having a drink with friends.
